Description The Canon RAW version 2 (cr2) format is a RAW format created by Canon for storing digital images. This does not contain a ready to view picture like a JPG or PNG file, it is used to store information directly coming from the sensor. You can choose to store your pictures in RAW format which gives you the benefit of being able to do a lot of post processing on the file, if you tried to do this with JPEG, this would be difficult and would likely result in a quality loss. TIFF is a computer file format for storing raster graphics images, popular among graphic artists, the publishing industry and photographers. The TIFF format is widely supported by image-manipulation applications, by publishing and page layout applications, and by scanning, faxing, word processing, optical character recognition and other applications.
Technical details RAW files are the best quality to size ratio that a photograph can be stored in, primarily because each colour is recorded in either 12 or 14 bits and a lossless compression is used. The CR2 takes over from Canon's previous format - CRW and is used by the Canon 350D, 1D, G9 and 20D models. A TIFF file, for example, can be a container holding JPEG (lossy) and PackBits (lossless) compressed images. A TIFF file also can include a vector-based clipping path (outlines, croppings, image frames). The ability to store image data in a lossless format makes a TIFF file a useful image archive.
