Sony Announces Uncompressed 14-Bit RAW + 8 New FE lenses Coming Early 2016


Sony Electronics, a worldwide leader in digital imaging and the world’s largest image sensor manufacturer, has today announced user-selectable Compressed and Uncompressed 14-Bit RAW image capture will be featured in the new a7SII once it arrives in stores this October.

Additionally, they have announced plans to add user-selectable compressed or uncompressed 14-Bit RAW still image capture via firmware update to additional cameras beginning with the recently introduced a7RII full-frame mirrorless model.

“The voice of our Alpha community remains the most important guiding force of our product development plans,” said Neal Manowitz, Deputy Vice President for Digital Imaging at Sony Electronics. “The addition of Uncompressed 14-Bit RAW processing is a direct result of customer feedback. Widely requested by photo and video enthusiasts, we believe the choice of RAW processing types will further elevate the performance of these extraordinary cameras.”

The a7SII and a7RII are compatible with Sony’s growing lineup of α -mount lenses, which now totals 63 different models including 12 native “˜FE’ full frame lenses. By early 2016, Sony will add an additional 8 new lenses to its FE full frame lineup, bringing the FE total to 20 lenses and the overall Sony Alpha lens line-up to over 70 different models.

  1. Hi Brian,

    The announcement on has been taken off. I hope that this doesn’t mean they’ve made a mistake. Would you be able to confirm that the news is true?


  2. I hope we will also get 14Bit uncompressed and no chroma noise in bulb mode (long exposure)! This is preventing me from switching my A7R to A7RII !
