What is a .SR2 file?

An SR2 file is a type of digital photo file created by Sony cameras, such as the Sony R-1. This file format is known as Sony RAW Image, and it captures all the image data directly from the camera's sensor without any compression. This means the image is stored in its purest form, offering high quality and detailed photographs. Photographers prefer using SR2 files because they provide more flexibility and precision during photo editing compared to other formats that compress and lose some image details.
