NEF NEF (Image)

File extension .nef
Category Image File
Description NEF otherwise known as the Nikon Electronic Format is Nikon's RAW file format. RAW file formats contain minimally processed data from the image sensor of the digital camera - the metadata includes information about the lens, the settings, the camera’s identification and other data. RAW files are named so because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor. RAW image formats are intended to capture as closely as possible the characteristics of the scene to include light intensity and colours.

Technical Details The structure of RAW files, including the ISO standard RAW image format ISO 12234-2 follows a common pattern - a short header, camera sensor metadata, image metadata such as exposure settings, camera and lens model, date and sometimes the location. A thumbnail, a smaller JPEG file for quick viewing and the sensor image data. NEF is based on the TIFF format.

The byte order is either Motorola or Intel depending on the first word. if it is MM, then you have Motorola byte ordering and likewise if it is II it means you have Intel byte ordering. Each TIFF file begins with an image file header which then points to an image file directory which contains the image data and image information.
