    Imaging Edge (Remote/Viewer/Edit) 1.0.00 has been released.

Three applications to support sophisticated creative work

Remote [Remote] : Shooting via live viewing on PC screen

Shooting a scene using Remote Shooting

A remote shooting application that lets you perform shooting operations while checking the images in Live View on the large screen of a computer.

Viewer Image selection (Viewer)

Image selection (Viewer)

Application enables viewing images in list display, to select and add ratings.

Convenient to quickly check image after shooting, used in combination with [Remote] and [Edit] functions.

  1. The result of shooting image can be quickly displayed by working together with [Remote]. File import is not necessary because it can reference folders. It also enables you to check the shooting image by using grid and guides.
  2. Shows image data such as RAW and JPEG in list display. In [Edit] you can select images to develop RAW file.
  3. Rating information can be transformed to XMP*(Adobe compatible), therefore can be transferred to Adobe Bridge and Photoshop.

Edit [Edit]: RAW Development

RAW development application achieves high quality developed image

A high-quality RAW development and adjustment function is implemented.

  1. You can adjust aspects of the image such as brightness, color, and white balance.
  2. You can adjust the image quality of ARQ-format images generated by Pixel Shift Multi Shooting and develop them into TIFF, JPEG, or other formats.

Pixel Shift Multi Shooting (Remote, Viewer, and Edit)

Pixel Shift Multi Shooting

This new fature takes advantage of the advanced in-body image stabilization system control capability available in the α7R III, precisely shifting the sensor in 1-pixel increments to capture four pixel-shifted images containing a total of approximately 169.6 million pixels* that are later composited using a computer to achieve overwhelming subjective resolution in a single image.

Still images of subjects such as architecture and art are captured with true-to-life details, texture, and color, to the point that even the atmosphere of the subject and surroundings are reproduced with breathtaking fidelity.

In a "normal" digital capture each pixel represents just one color: red, green, or blue.

The surrounding pixels are used to supply the necessary extra information required to interpolate and reproduce the remaining two primary colors.

Pixel Shift Multi Shooting, however, composites four pixel-shifted images so that each of the sensor’s 42.4 million effective pixels can represent red, green, and blue values simultaneously.

Extra interpolation becomes unnecessary so the data from the sensor can be directly synthesized to recreate the final colors with minimal moire or color artifacts.

The result is unprecedented reproduction accuracy and detail for true-to-life textures.

Images shot using this feature can be processed using the supplied "Imaging Edge (Remote/Viewer/Edit)" software running on a personal computer.
