Canon uses two different RAW formats CR2 and CRW. The CR2 format is used by Canon since the 350D, 20D, G9 and 1D MarkII models. The early version of this RAW format was CRW and is used by Canon D30, D60, 10D, 300D, PowerShot Pro1, G1-G6, S30-S70.
The “RAW” here means that this file stores information directly coming from the sensor, almost without processing. RAW file is the best quality/size ratio storage a photograph can use to store his picture, mainly because each primary color is recorded in 12 or 14bits, and a lossless compression is used.
