Is the RAW format the same as with Sony DSLR or Cyber-shot cameras?

    Valid for

    • Xperia 5 II
    • Xperia® 1 II


    No. Sony® Alpha and Cyber-shot® cameras support the ARW format files, which is Sony's unique format, while the Xperia 1 II and Xperia 5 II support the DNG format file, which is developed by Adobe®. Also, the DNG format is supported by several apps on Windows®, Android™, and Mac® OS, which can be used to develop and edit photos.

    Note: RAW photo (.DNG) output will be supported by a future software update.
