What is RW2 file?

Files in the RW2 format are used to store RAW raster images captured with a Panasonic device. RW2 files contain uncompressed and unprocessed digital images data, provided directly from the optics of a camera.

Additional information about RW2 files

Due to its raw form, files in the RW2 format use a lot of disc space. Because of such storing method, it is possible to edit much data of the image, for instance – its exposition, contrast, colour saturation, etc..

RW2 files cannot be previewed, printed or edited with standard graphic edition programs, but only using specialised tools for processing raw images. Such files are utilised mainly in the Lumix series Panasonic devices.
