It provides the facility to save our photos in the format of our choice. The both, JPEG and RAW format are the most popular formats and used by the Photographers.

The reason of using these two formats by the photographer is that it facilitates him/her to edit it as per need or you can say to make it more attractive. They can use RAW photo to save in any file formats supported by the camera.

Some of the popular RAW file formats used by the Digital Camera Manufactures are as below:
