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 is used to display bitmap images in the SunOS operating system. It uses the RLE compression algorithm and supports between 1 and 32 bits per pixel. It can be created in the Unix environment, and it is used for certain types of research projects. It is primarily used on Sun Microsystems computers.
