    No. The Alpha and Cyber-shot® cameras support the ARW format files, which is our unique format, while the Xperia® phones 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.
