What is a arw file?

Sony Alpha Raw (ARW) is a proprietary RAW image format developed for Sony camera photos. Three DSC series Sony cameras use this file extension, however, the format is mostly associated with the “alpha” α-DSLR series. ARW files can be opened with Sony Image Data Converter software provided with the camera. Drivers are available to make ARW files viewable in Microsoft Windows. ARW is a TIFF-based file format, meaning it adheres to some of the structural guidelines of the widely accepted TIFF standard. ARW files are compatible with Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom 3.  ARW files can also be converted to JPG or BMP files.
