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.
PFM is a font metric data file. It is also one of the formats of the font file category. This applies to fonts in the Adobe Type 1 (= postscript) category used by the Microsoft Windows operating system. The format contains font character sizes. He asks for the font associated file extension .PFB. It does not have the glyphs of the font itself, but with its help, the correct display of the PFB file is obtained. PFM files, that is, the Printer Font Metrics File, contain metric information about the fonts that applications use to lay out lines of text in a document. PostScipt Type 1 fonts have multiple files. The package usually comes with a couple of files with the extensions PFB and PFM. However, there may be 3 files with the extensions AFM, PFB and INF, or all 4 files - PFM, PFB, INF, AFM. Windows 7 and Windows Vista must have PFM. Modern versions of Windows have built-in tools for installing fonts of all formats. The installation procedure is the same for all font formats, but it differs for different versions of Windows. After installation, you may need to restart the application. Only then will the new fonts appear in the font list. You can open the PFM file using programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Windows Font Viewer, Microsoft Windows.
