CategoryImage File
DescriptionRAW is a generic term referring to a family of image formats containing unprocessed image data and metadata, which is received directly from image sensors of digital image- or motion picture cameras and/or scanners. RAW files are not usable as images and are often referred to as digital negatives. RAW images directly reflect color and light intensity and therefore demonstrate true color picture. In order to print or view a RAW file, it must be converted to a standard raster graphics format (JPEG). Each camera model has its own RAW extension. Formats are differentiated according camera manufacturers' names: .nef (Nickon), .crw (Canon), .srw (Samsung), etc.
