What is a RAF file?

Fujifilm Raw image

Files using the .raf file extension are frequently linked with MyFinePix Studio. Developed by Fujifilm, myFInePix is a program used to manage, view, and print images. The program can also be used to upload images and movies to social networking services and also, users can also edit 3D still images and movies taken by Fujifilm 3D digital cameras.

Every .raf file contains the Exchangeable Image File information or EXIF. This EXIF is tagged with the image to be open and edited using other third-party graphics applications. Some graphics programs that recognize the format are Qimage and Thumbnails for Fuji.

Fujifilm .raf (raw file) images contain clean, unprocessed data from the Fuji cameras CCD or CMOS sensor. It is called raw because it is a digital negative without any other in-camera effects and compression. A .raf file means literally as a raw image- nothing has been done on the file, and it is what it is.
