JPF is a raster image category file format that is the successor to the .JPEG image format. Like some other file name extensions (.jpx, .jp2, .j2k), the .jpf extension refers to the JPEG 2000 image format. It is needed to designate the JPEG 2000 Image file type. And JPEG 2000 files are an international standard (ISO / IEC 15444) bitmap format. It was developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group, JPEG. It serves as a good replacement for the JPEG standard, which is older, but, as before, is in demand and widespread. Compared to JPEG in JPF format, wavelet compression is used, due to the alpha channel transparency is supported, as well as a variety of color models. Also, compared to JPEG, this format provides better scalability of images, provides the ability to achieve smaller file sizes and have a higher level of quality. The format is able to combine compression with losses and without losses. Provides support for image transparency and additional metadata information. It can be viewed in QuickTime Player 7, as in recent versions of Photoshop, provided that the JPEG2000.8bi plugin is installed. Many images also have the extension .JP2 or .JPX.
MEF is Mamiya's own RAW format. A high-quality Japanese brand is well known to those who take professional photographs. His story began in the 1940s. It was then that camera designer Seiichi Mamiya and investor Tsunejiro Sugawara created Mamiya. Mamiya ZD cameras are the first mid-format digital cameras. The expanded name of the MEF format is Mamiya RAW Image. He gained fame as a format of "digital negatives". Mamiya has developed this format in order to use it in cameras of its own production. At the same time, the main goal was to store the photos in an uncompressed form, so that later they would be processed without losing quality. The format is built on the principle of a RAW file. It contains a complete set of information that is received from the camera lens. RAW images are uncompressed files. They can be customized using image editing software. They are often preferred by professional photographers, because they are tasked with having high-quality images with many details. An MEF file is capable of storing an image as if it had been made into a CCD camera device. In most cases, it is stored on a memory card, and then transferred to a computer in order to edit and publish.
