      Why would I buy an SLR if in the first place, supported naman talaga ang RAW format sa 5.1. Itong Sony lang naman talaga ang hindi nakikinig sa users nito. Search for Samsung’s S6’s 5.1; RAW is enabled ‘daw’ (not on stock but can be utilized using 3rd party apps). Even LG’s G4 supports it, so why not Sony? Paki-justify nga ang suggestion mong bumili ako/kami ng SLR? Buset.

    Why do you need raw? Raw produces to about 20 MB photos. if you need support for raw better buy an SLR where you can adjust all manual settings. if you don’t find that ideal and you want portability. They have the Alpha cameras. Sony A5000 cause 22K with all the functionality of a mirrorless cam. Raw is basically not useful for casual shooter.
