Sony to Release a7R II Firmware Adding Uncompressed 14-Bit RAW on October 19th

NEW YORK, Oct. 14, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  Sony Electronics, a worldwide leader in digital imaging and the world's largest image sensor manufacturer, will release a firmware update on October 19th that adds uncompressed  14-Bit RAW image capture to the acclaimed a7R II full frame interchangeable lens camera. 


The new firmware, version 2.0, will be available for download through Sony's e-support site 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.
