Sony unleashes pocket-sized HX95 and HX99 travel zoom cameras

At IFA in Berlin this morning, Sony took the wraps off a new pair of cameras billed as the ‘world’s smallest travel high zoom cameras’.

The Sony HX95 and HX99 are two compacts designed to be easy to carry everywhere without compromising on image quality. Each sports a 30x zoom lens as well as the capacity to capture 4K video and burst shoot at up to 10fps. (You might want to take a look at our list of best travel cameras while you're here.)
