Opening SRF files

Did your computer fail to open a SRF file? We explain what SRF files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your SRF files.

What is a SRF file?

Most files that contain the SRF file extension are raw image files that have been created by a Sony digital camera. The SRF files store the images that have been taken by the camera in an uncompressed raw file format. This means that the image is saved exactly the way that it was captured by the camera's sensor.

Image editors can take the raw SRF files that a user takes with his or her camera and can make adjustments to the image's settings once the file has been saved to the user's computer.

The .srf file extension is also used for Garmin software. These SRF files contain vehicle image files that are used by the software application.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
