What is a orf file?

ORF files contain unprocessed, raw image data from the CCD detector in some Olympus digital cameras. Besides image data, ORF files can contain text information about the picture and camera conditions when the picture was taken.

ORF files are similar to traditional film negatives in that they contain the information necessary to render an image, but are not intended as images themselves. As such, ORF files cannot be managed using photo editing software though settings such as exposure and white balance can be modified after a picture is taken.

ORF images can contain 12 bits or more, and can be edited more extensively than TIFF or JPEG images, which have only 8 bits. For this reason, ORF format is only supported by professional-grade Olympus digital cameras.
