Format for storing images without compression that was created for use on Fuji cameras. It comprises a set of data received from camera sensors in the form of RAW files. In contrast to compressed images, RAF provides the ability to edit the levels of sharpness, white balance and exposure. It can carry a copy of the photo in JPG format in the same file.
The SXW file format was originally created for StarOffice Writer, the word processing application for Sun Microsystem's StarOffice suite. Programs that can open SXW files include StarOffice Writer and OpenOffice.org Writer. To open an SXW file in Microsoft Word, it's usually possible by renaming it as a DOC file.
