Does A7R have uncompressed raw

My understanding is that the 3.10 firmware for the A7R did NOT have uncompressed raw. Does anyone know if this has changed? Can we get uncompressed raw on the A7R?

Nope, only lossly compressed RAWs.

I feel guilty but despite having uncompressed RAW on my a7Rii, for 99% of the time I use compressed RAW. I can't see any difference when taking "properly (classically?)" exposed photographs despite my pixel peeping efforts.

I am going to see if I can see a difference when I take some night scenes.

I have had the same experience and at double the file size+ I almost always shoot compressed.

Despite my now having the ability to use uncompressed RAW with the A7R2, i have never had the urge to use it.  I do a lot of night scenes, and have never noticed a problem with their compressed RAW.  Shhh... don't tell Sony

Re: Does A7R have uncompressed raw

I only use it (and that is when I remember to) in some landscape shots where I really want to max out every bit of DR the A7rII has to offer. I then convert to DNG on import in Lr6 which brings the file size down a lot

Re: Does A7R have uncompressed raw

Sony has completely abandoned the first generation buyers, only providing FW updates to provide compatibility with new lenses.

I don't have any AF lenses, so if I want a picture, I have to do more than squeeze a button.
