This review has a file size table comparing several cameras and several compression modesHas anyone tested the difference between compressed and uncompressed raw on the A1? Also roughly what is the reduction in size of the compressed raw vs uncompressed?
Will Lightroom handle lossless compressed RAW as well, or only Camera Raw?I used uncompressed Raw for my first two days shooting with the A1, and files varied a little in size, but around 102-103MB.
Adobe Camera RAW supports lossless compressed RAW now, and I am seeing more variation in file size, from about 60MB to about 75MB, or thereabout.
I am not using lossy compressed RAW files.
Capture One also accepts lossy compressed RAWs. They are not as bad as I thought.Ok, well this thread answers my question about why I can't import any of my photos into anything other than Sony Edit. Sigh. Will switch to fully uncompressed RAW images for now until updates come out (hopefully soon) to allow using compressed and/or lossless RAW on Mac OS 11 / iOS 14.
Thanks, will maybe use that for now. While Lightroom and, as you point out, Capture One support ARW 4.0, it looks like I’ve got a bit of a wait until Mac OS natively supports it so all apps can work with them equally. It was just a bit jarring to go from shooting on my A7R4 to the A1 and all of a sudden lots of apps couldn’t open the files. HOWEVER, the A1 is already so amazing, that I really should not complain about a small thing like this.Capture One also accepts lossy compressed RAWs. They are not as bad as I thought.
Great news about C1 supporting lossless compressed raw files. Thank you for the update.
I'm still waiting for the A1 but at least I now know that I can use the format I wanted to use. Looking forward to 20 fps in this file format. I have already experienced 30 fps back in 2019 and just have little reason to use it - but 20 fps seems to be a sweet spot for me.
Fujifilm X-T3 - AF obviously not the same but it was blackout free. I heard claims that the electronic shutter sensor readout was faster than the typical non stacked sensors at that time. I do know that I could do more with the electronic shutter with the X-T3 over the X-H1 in certain lighting conditions so I suspect there might be some truth to that claim.Which camera was able to shoot at 30fps in 2019? I'm curious, because I didn't know there was one.
