CR2 - Canon Digital Camera Raw Image Format


Format introduction:

The .CR2 file format (Canon RAW version 2) is a digital photography RAW format created by Canon. "RAW" here means that this file stores information directly coming from the sensor, almost without processing. RAW files can be seen as a digital negative format, and do not contains a "ready to view" picture, like jpeg.

Technical details:

RAW file is the best quality/size ratio storage a photograph can use to store his picture, mainly because each primary color (R, G or B) is recorded in 12 or 14bits (8bits for Jpeg), and a lossless compression is used (lossy for Jpeg). Jpeg files on the opposite are "ready to use" files, but a lot a processing is necessary to obtain such file, it is made automatically by the Camera embedded software.
