What does a digital camera RAW file store?

  • An image?
  • numbers?
  • A/D converted sensor values?
  • colours?
  • light information?

When I use a photo develop program like Capture One, Affinity Photo or darktable I don’t really need to care. I am presented with an image, I can tweak it and hopefully get out a good looking digital photo.

But when I want to know what color an object in a photo has? What do the values in a RAW (or digital native) image tell me? This is the second part in the series “Numbers and meaning” with the second article called “It’s getting RAW“.
