Creative works using Remote/Viewer/Edit
Pixel Shift Multi Shooting

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.

Create time-lapse movie

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.
