    Sony Raw, not Compressed Raw

    I read that in order to record all important detail, one should shoot images in Raw. It would appear from scaling through the menu's on my a7R ll that only Compressed Raw is offered.

    Sony Sony DSC HX80

    Still re-learning the nuances of a small sensor pocket compact. I like it because it's got a built-in EVF and it reaches out to 720mm effective, which is really much more than what I need; I would have been pretty happy to 200mm. Indoors, you really need the built-in flash, which does a decent...

    Use the RX100mIII since quite a while for doing time-lapses. Works incredible well with the playmemories App. Quality is very good as is the possibility to do long time-lapse sequences. What’s excellent is that even without any external battery the little guy can do several sequences without the...

    Sony Panorama mode disables the zoom - is that normal? (rx100 M5)
