Raw camera file formats
A raw camera file is a data file captured by the image censor of a high-end digital camera. Raw camera files contain minimal in-camera processing, such as sharpening or digital zoom, and they give you full control over the sharpness, contrast, and saturation of images. Various raw camera file formats exist, so the files can have different filename extensions, such as .nef, .crw, .dcr, .orf, or .mrw.
You can import raw camera files directly into Corel PHOTO-PAINT. For more information, see “Working with raw camera files.”
