You can fine-tune your composition using a grid, guide, and overlay display.
You can perform precise focus adjustment efficiently by using area specification focus, magnification display and fine-tuning with manual focus.
In "Pixel Shift Multi Shooting" the camera shoots four RAW images while shifting the image sensor. You can generate images with a higher resolution than is possible with regular shooting by combining the four RAW images on a PC. This is helpful when shooting still subjects, such as works of art and buildings.
In addition, when combined with ILCE-7RM4, the camera can shoot 16 RAW images to achieve ultrahigh-resolution shooting with information equivalent to 963.2 million pixels (approx. 60.2 million pixels x 16).
Remote Shooting using a PC/Mac
After connecting the camera and your PC/Mac via USB, you can use Remote to perform Remote Shooting. You can check the composition, focus, and exposure on your PC/Mac screen before you shoot.
Combining and browsing the shot images
When you are done shooting, the uncombined RAW images (ARW format) are transferred to your PC/Mac. Combined RAW data (ARQ format) is automatically generated on your PC/Mac, and you can browse it using Viewer.
With Viewer, you can also combine and browse images shot with Pixel Shift Multi Shooting using only the camera and not PC/Mac.
Adjusting the image quality and Output
The combined image can be developed into the JPEG or TIFF format by adjusting the image quality using Edit.
You can create time-lapse movie* using still images (RAW/JPEG) captured during interval shooting.
Convenient functions for video production such as batch adjustment of RAW still images, BGM and subtitle insertion, and 4K video output are available.
