What is a cr2 file?

A CR2 (Canon Raw Image File) is a raw image file format created by Canon digital cameras. CR2 files are saved as TIFF files, and are produced by newer-model Canon cameras. CR2 is a distinct file format from the CRW file format that is produced by older Canon digital cameras. CR2 files are uncompressed and can be opened and viewed by Canon’s proprietary image-viewing software that is included with all Canon cameras. CR2 files are also supported by many popular image-processing programs, including Adobe Photoshop (PSD) and Picasa, and can be converted to other image file formats like JPG or TIFF.
