In addition to F55RAW, AXS-R7 has new camera capture format X-OCN. X-OCN stands for Extended tonal range Original Camera Negative. X-OCN has two recording mode, X-OCN ST (Standard) and X-OCN LT (Light). X-OCN ST is visually indistinguishable quality from F55RAW by 70% data size of F55RAW. X-OCN LT is 40% data size of F55RAW. X-OCN LT can record 2.3 times longer recording time. Both X-OCN ST and X-OCN LT records metadata to capture your choices for ISO sensitivity, color temperature and others. These choices are completely non-destructive and the full potential of the original sensor data is delivered into post-production by 16-bit scene linear data.
