What are SRF files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a SRF file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.

What is a SRF file?

A .SRF file is a Camera RAW Image File (Sony SRF) file. Most files that contain the SRF file extension are raw image files that a Sony digital camera has created. The SRF files store the images that the camera has taken in an uncompressed raw file format. This means that the image is saved exactly as the camera's sensor captured it.

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