DCR File - opening and understanding

What is a DCR file?
DCR stands for Digital Camera Raw. Files that contain the .dcr file extension are created by certain 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 that was 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.
