Sony brings RAW support for Xperia 1 II in Photo Pro mode

Yordan, 28 July 2020

Sony introduced the Xperia 1 II as its ultimate camera smartphone and it has a Photo Pro mode that gives an abundance of features to be tweaked. One thing it was missing was RAW support, but now it is coming alongside the July security update in firmware update version 58.0.A.3.88.

The package is just about 75 MB and brings improvements to the front camera during video calls as well. However, there still isn’t any sort of Night Mode, despite many manufacturers with cheaper lower-tier smartphones introducing the technology.

The RAW option is currently available only in Photo Pro mode. The files are stored in DNG format and is saved automatically to the internal storage - there’s no option to switch to microSD, presumably to make sure that the write speed is sufficiently high.
