Which setting turns off compression in photo mode Sony AX100E

Hi,
Full manual control Sony AX100E camcorder has photo mode which sees it operate as a camera.
Fantastic hi res pics almost same size as my canon EOS 70D but spoilt by what is compression visible when same shot compared on a dSLR shooting RAW mode.
Is there a Sony RAW mode for the stills, I see no reason why it couldnt have such, if not then where is setting to reduce the compression to 0 in what are jpg files.
There is no harm in having user with choice of compression or not as the hardware is enough to take a superb photo and replace the need to also carry a dSLR but then its spoilt by compression which serious camcorder users and photographers wouldnt opt for.
Else my hope of having one device does both is lost. ( and I did try out bridge and so on, but serious airshow filming saw them fail) I have to carry around a dSLR and have both on straps round my neck bashing together, double the weight, double the bags, double the kit to look after etc.

This camcorder can only take photos in compressed JPEG mode and no RAW. No camcorder that I know of today can take RAW photos as most videographers who shoot video with camcorders nowadays have very little interest in high quality photography.
