What is RAW?

Raw images contain data from a digital camera’s sensor with minimal processing.  As such, they can be considered to be a “digital negative” containing nearly all of the information originally captured by the digital camera.  A raw file can be “developed” to create, for example, a standard JPEG file for viewing on the web.  All high-end digital cameras, and many mid-range cameras, offer the option to save images and raw files.
