RAW development application achieves high quality developed image:
• Adjust image brightness, color and white balance.
• Adjust the image quality of ARQ-format images generated by Pixel Shift Multi Shooting and develop them into TIFF, JPEG, or other formats.
Pixel Shift Multi Shooting (Remote, Viewer and Edit)
This new feature takes advantage of the advanced in-body image stabilization system control capability available in the a7R III, precisely shifting the sensor in 1-pixel increments to capture four pixel-shifted images containing a total of approximately 169.6 million pixels* that are later composited using a computer to achieve overwhelming subjective resolution in a single image. Still images are captured with true-to life details, texture, and color, with minimal moirÃ© and color artifacts. Even the atmosphere of the subject and surroundings are reproduced with breathtaking fidelity, making Pixel Shift Multi Shooting an ideal technology for archival images of art, architecture, and more. * Image size after compositing is approx. 42.4 million (7952 x 5304) pixels
