SonyPixelShiftt2DNG (beta): Convert Sony A7R-III Pixel Shift Files to DNG


SonyPixelShiftt2DNG looks like an interesting solution to the lack of Pixel Shift support in Lightroom and other applications, but I am curious to see how the files perform once combined into the DNG format. You can read the release notes below and download the application here.

In order to streamline the workflow with the raw shots taken in the new Pixel Shift Multi Shooting mode offered by the new Sony A7R-IIIcamera, and provide a way to use popular RAW converters (Adobe Camera Raw/Lightroom, Capture One, and some others) for processing these shots, we’ve developed the SonyPixelShift2DNG application, which converts Sony A7R-III shots taken in Pixel Shift mode to DNG, supported by most (but not all) programs that process RAW files.

SonyPixelShift2DNG performs the two following tasks:

  • Combine 4 source ARW files taken in Pixel Shift Multi Shooting mode and save the result as a DNG;
  • Convert the ARQ files resulting from Sony’s Imaging Edge Viewer software (so, already-combined quartets of ARW files) to DNG

The resulting DNG files can later be processed in familiar applications like Adobe Lightroom and Camera Raw, CaptureOne, Iridient Developer, Luminar, and others.
