OpenRAW Group writes "The OpenRAW Working Group launched a website today at http://www.OpenRAW.org
designed to solve issues crucial to the future of photography.
Digital technology is revolutionizing the photography industry, and
an emerging part of that technology is the set of RAW camera file formats.

it offers the highest quality and the greatest creative control.

of millions of photographs.
The goal of the new website is to obtain complete documentation by
manufacturers of their RAW file formats."
