Sony Electronics, a worldwide leader in digital imaging and the worldâ€™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.
â€œThe voice of our Alpha community remains the most important guiding force of our product development plans,â€ said Neal Manowitz, Deputy Vice President for Digital Imaging at Sony Electronics. â€œThe 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.â€
The a7SII and a7RII are compatible with Sonyâ€™s growing lineup of Î± -mount lenses, which now totals 63 different models including 12 native â€˜FEâ€™ 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.
