WebP is an open-source format for image files, raster images. Created in 2010 by Google for web graphics in order to quickly upload images to web pages. This is the main advantage of WebP files. Compression of images in this format can go with or without loss, depending on what level of quality you want to achieve. Thus, lossless compression is 26% better than in PNG files. If quality loss is acceptable, then compression in WebP format is 25-34% better than in JPEG files. Full support for WebP is not yet available on Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari.
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.
