Setting the image aspect
You can change the aspect ratio (horizontal-to-vertical ratio) when taking pictures.
Depending on your preference, you can set the aspect ratio to [4:3] (standard), [16:9],
[3:2], [1:1], or [3:4].
Press the z button to display the live control, and select the aspect ratio
item using FG.
Select an aspect ratio option with HI and press the z button.
• JPEG images are cropped to the selected aspect ratio; RAW images, however, are not
cropped but are instead saved with information on the selected aspect ratio.
• When RAW images are played back, the selected aspect ratio is shown by a frame.
Selecting image quality (still image quality mode)
You can set an image quality mode for still images. Select a quality suitable for the
application (such as for processing on PC, use on website etc.).
Press z to display the live control, and select the image quality mode item
for still images using FG.

Still image quality mode
Select an option with HI and press the z button.
Choose from JPEG (YF, YN, XN, and WN) and RAW modes. Choose a JPEG+RAW
option to record both a JPEG and a RAW image with each shot. JPEG modes combine
image size (Y, X, and W) and compression ratio (SF, F, N, and B).
When you want to select a combination other than YF/YN/XN/WN, change the
[K Set] (P. 93 ) settings in Custom Menu.
RAW image data
This format (extension “.ORF”) stores unprocessed image data for later processing. RAW
image data cannot be viewed using other cameras or software, and RAW images cannot
be selected for printing. JPEG copies of RAW images can be created using this camera.
