The DSC-HX99 lets you shoot images in RAW format along with a maximum ISO6400, which easily makes it ideal for shooting in low-light.

There’s also a Touch Focus/Touch Shutter so you can easily select subjects or even use the included Touch Pad so you can focus using the viewfinder. The camera also has a high-contrast retractable OLED display plus an upgraded grip for a better grip when shooting.
Both the DSC-HX99 and the DSC-WX800 feature image stabilization in the form of Optical SteadyShot that effectively removes the blur in shaky shots. We mentioned the cameras can record in 4K, and it can also record up to 100 fps for the best slow-motion images.
