The new firmware, version 2.0, will be available for download through Sony's e-support site www.esupport.sony.com on the product page for model "ILCE-7RM2". In addition to uncompressed RAW capture, which will become a selectable feature (uncompressed/compressed RAW) within the menu system for updated cameras, the firmware also adds the ability for the a7R II to output video via HDMI during use of the Remote Camera Control software, that enables remote capture from a connected computer.
The a7S II and a7R II are compatible with Sony's growing lineup of a-mount lenses, which now totals 64 different models including 13 native 'FE' full frame lenses. In 2016, Sony aims to build the native FE lens lineup to over 20 different models.
A variety of exclusive stories and exciting new content shot with the new a7R II cameras plus other Sony a products can be found at www.alphauniverse.com, Sony's new community site built to educate, inspire and showcase all fans and customers of the Sony a brand.
