The HX90V Compact Digital Camera truly belies its size. Boasting 30x optical zoom and up to 60x with Clear Image Zoom*1, it's the world's smallest*2 camera to offer such outstanding capability to cover nearly any shooting situation. This far-reaching potential brings distant subjects like wildlife and majestic buildings up close and personal to create powerfully dynamic photos. With Optical SteadyShot™'s precise camera shake detection, you can now achieve the crispest long shots any day and anywhere through a camera that fits right into your pocket.

Combining expertise in sensor technology and optics, the new ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens is the result of a collaboration with Sony to optimise and deliver sharp, brilliant images with rich contrast. Featuring well-controlled distortion throughout a broad 24-720mm*3 focal length range, you can be assured of pin sharp images from any distance.
