What is a DCR file?

DCR files have multiple uses, and Camera RAW Image File (Kodak) is one of them. Read more about the others further down the page.

Camera RAW Image File (Kodak)

DCR stands for Digital Camera Raw. Files that contain the .dcr file extension are created by specific Kodak digital cameras, usually of the SLR variety.

The DCR file format is used to take photographs without the camera making color adjustments or compressing the image file that has been captured by the camera. This allows the user to edit a raw data file of the image taken, and the image appears exactly as the camera had captured it at the time of the photograph.

The DCR file may also include text information about the picture, such as the date and time the picture was taken.
