Where to download HX99 RAW samples?

I couldn't find any on sony.com and would like to properly evaluate the image quality of this camera.

Thanks!

These links are for samples from the RX100 VI, not the HX99. These are very different cameras, with the former having a sensor that's about 4 times larger than the latter. I know its quality is decent. The question is about the quality of the HX99. It uses a sensor that's closer to those used by cell phones...

Sorry about that - I cannot think why I missed something so obvious.

I think you might have to wait some time until the camera is in more hands. I would imagine that Cameralabs will do a review, as they did one of the HX90V some time ago.  In addition, it might be difficult to do lens corrections for RAW images until third parties update their software to work with it.

FWIW I have the same question. So far I have had no luck... I thought the HX99 cam had released in Europe and elsewhere a couple months ago but I wonder if Sony actually shipped any stock to them...

It was announced some time ago, but I think the release date in Europe is in early November, as in the US.

A promo on the HS99's imminent release was posted in dp review on August 31. It specifically mentions that the camera (and the HX95) would be available in October. It does not give an exact date.

No reviews have yet appeared from anyone in Europe. Chances are the camera is not even out there yet.

Sorry - misread the order:  Camera ships 11/8/2018.  Some of the other things I ordered ship on 10/24/2018

No worries, thanks Jack.

I'd be grateful if you could post some OOC pics when you get a chance!

Re: Where to download HX99 RAW samples?

Hmm... I may consider trading my HX90v just for the extra ISO reach, 4k video modes and RAW file capability. I've long since stopped using the built in GPS anyway on the HX90v as it doesn't always work properly.

Thanks for posting the link to the RAW shots.

The latest version of Raw Therapy (5.6) will handle the RAW files very well.

The latest Ubuntu Studio version has 5.5, but I was able to view the RAW files there. Thanks.

Not sure I'll get the HX99.
As it is the best HX90V JPEGs I've shot are fine. Looked at some of the HX99 samples, and pixel peeped them against some of the best HX90V JPEGs I have posted on my flickr page. I still may get it when it goes on sale for less than $450... I'd rather get it new if I grab one at all. But for now, I'm happy with my HX90 and ironed out some of the issues I was having with the GPS feature (mostly tracking and storing data).
