Image::ExifTool::CanonRaw(3) Read Canon RAW (CRW) meta information


This module is loaded automatically by Image::ExifTool when required.


This module contains definitions required by Image::ExifTool to interpret meta information from Canon CRW raw files. These files are written directly by some Canon cameras, and contain meta information similar to that found in the EXIF Canon maker notes.


The CR2 format written by some Canon cameras is very different the CRW format processed by this module. (CR2 is TIFF-based and uses standard EXIF tags.)
