B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX99. Packed into its pocketable build is a 24-720mm equivalent zoom, so you can make sure you get the shot regardless of the situation.

And, befitting an everyday camera, the HX99 offers users a 180° tilting touchscreen and a pop-up 638.4k-dot OLED EVF.
