16-Bit Linear RAW

16-Bit Linear RAW- Type of RAW recording used by the Sony F65, F55 and F5 (in conjunction with the companion SR-R4 and AXS-R5 recorders). Each additional bit doubles the number of discrete colors that be recorded per RGB channel. Sony 16-bit RAW retains 16 times as many colors as conventional 12-bit RAW and 64 times as many colors as 10-bit RAW. By design, 16-bit RAW is the perfect gateway for 16-bit linear ACES post-production.
