After introducing the new full-frame Sony RX1R II yesterday, Sony brings another innovation - new firmware (version 2.0) for the Sony Alpha a7R II, which was launched at the beginning of June.
As it was the case with the new Sony Alpha a7S II last month, now the Sony a7R II receives 14-bit uncompressed RAW support. With this format, which is also part of the new Sony RX1R II's configuration, users will get the most out of the camera's superb 42.4MP BSI CMOS sensor.
Furthermore, this update will enable the a7R II to output video via HDMI during use of the Remote Camera Control software, which enables remote capture from a connected computer.
The firmware update (version 2.0) concerning the addition of 14-bit uncompressed RAW support to the Sony Alpha a7R II officially comes on Monday, October 19, and the company has not disclosed which cameras will get the firmware update next - the only thing that is for sure is that new firmware updates will definitely follow.
