No thanks. Most people prefer pure RAW, not cooked RAW ..

I am sure people prefer pure RAW but my friend sony files are also cooked:

"dual BIONZ engines apply advanced noise reduction algorithms twice — once prior to RAW data conversion and again during image processing "

Oh, thanks for reminding me to answer that post. I forgot to answer it last time.


On A700 it was not possible to turn off the RAW NR, and that led to all those controversy back then 4 years ago. A900, just like A700, had the same RAW NR, but you can turn it off on A900

Then Sony released FW4 for A700 that finally gave the user option to turn off the RAW NR.

Next point?

Yaa I have plenty of them.

RAW Data NR is number 13 in chart as per Sony. That is what you can switch off. Where are the options to switch off :
(8) Analog Signal Noise Reduction
(9) Digital Noise Reduction

These two are before your (13) RAW Data NR.

So it seems Sony is applying 4 steps of Noise reduction , 3 of which are to RAW data or before it. You can switch off only 1 of them.

Next excuse please.
