In this format, you can save images that are shot on Sony (Minolta) cameras and some digital SLR cameras. MRW images are stored in uncompressed RAW form, and they contain more detail than compressed images. This format allows you to edit the white balance, exposure, brightness, and other elements losslessly.
This format was developed by Kodak in order to store images on optical or other media. It is used as a format for archiving scanned documents on Kodak devices. It encodes images in 24-bit color and supports resolutions of up to 6144x4096 pixels.
