Find Similar RAW – Canon CR3 Files

A CR3 file is an image created by select Canon digital cameras, such as the Canon EOS M50. It may store uncompressed RAW image data exactly how it was captured by the CCD or compressed RAW (C-RAW) image data depending on the camera setting selected. CR3 files were introduced in 2018 with the release of the Canon EOS M50, replacing .CR2 files.

Canon, like other manufacturers, uses file extensions to separate their digital image files from the competitors. This extension tells the computer program if it can use it or not. The CR3 file is a Canon Raw format, which has the highest quality reproduction of the scene you are shooting.

As the CR3 file is a relatively new file format, your computer might not let you preview CR3 file type images. To edit CR3 files, you need access to an editing software platform that can read them.

Many raw file formats, including IIQ (Phase One), 3FR (Hasselblad), DCR, K25, KDC (Kodak), CRW CR2 CR3 (Canon), ERF (Epson), MEF (Mamiya), MOS (Leaf), NEF NRW (Nikon), ORF (Olympus), PEF (Pentax), RW2 (Panasonic) and ARW, SRF, SR2 (Sony), are based on the TIFF file format. These files may deviate from the TIFF standard in a number of ways, including the use of a non-standard file header, the inclusion of additional image tags and the encryption of some of the tagged data.

Find Similar RAW – Hasselblad FFF Files

An FFF file is a raw camera image created by various Hasselblad digital camera models, including H6D-400C MS and X1D II 50C. It stores uncompressed image data exactly how it was captured by the CCD, which allows for higher resolution images than compressed image data. FFF files are typically used by professional photographers because they store higher quality images that can be more accurately edited.

Victor Hasselblad AB is a Swedish manufacturer of medium format cameras, photographic equipment and image scanners based in Gothenburg, Sweden. The company originally became known for its classic analog medium format cameras that used a unique waist level viewfinder. Perhaps the most famous use of the Hasselblad camera was during the Apollo program missions when the first humans landed on the Moon. Almost all of the still photographs taken during these missions used modified Hasselblad cameras. In 2016, Hasselblad introduced the world’s first digital compact mirrorless medium format camera, the X1D-50c, changing the portability of medium format photography. Hasselblad only produces about 10,000 cameras a year out of a small three story building.

The Eastman Kodak Company (referred to simply as Kodak /ˈkoʊdæk/) is an American technology company that produces camera-related products with its historic basis on photography. The company is headquartered in Rochester, New York, and is incorporated in New Jersey. Kodak provides packaging, functional printing, graphic communications and professional services for businesses around the world. Its main business segments are Print Systems, Enterprise Inkjet Systems, Micro 3D Printing and Packaging, Software and Solutions, and Consumer and Film.It is best known for photographic film products.

Kodak was founded by George Eastman and Henry A. Strong on September 4, 1888. During most of the 20th century, Kodak held a dominant position in photographic film. The company’s ubiquity was such that its “Kodak moment” tagline entered the common lexicon to describe a personal event that was demanded to be recorded for posterity. Kodak began to struggle financially in the late 1990s, as a result of the decline in sales of photographic film and its slowness in transitioning to digital photography, despite developing the first self-contained digital camera. As a part of a turnaround strategy, Kodak began to focus on digital photography and digital printing, and attempted to generate revenues through aggressive patent litigation.

In the lead-up to World War II, Asahi Optical devoted much of its time to fulfilling military contracts for optical instruments. At the end of the war Asahi Optical was disbanded by the occupying powers, being allowed to re-form in 1948. The company resumed its pre-war activities, manufacturing binoculars and consumer camera lenses for Konishiroku and Chiyoda Kōgaku Seikō (later Konica and Minolta respectively).

It was only a display problem, but some users thought that the application was stuck especially when scanning large drives.

Fastest Duplicate File Finder – Scan Methods

  1. 100% Equal Files – This is the best mode for a proper duplicate scan. While it is not the fastest of all the supported modes, it is the one that guarantees to list true duplicates. Many tools on the market may perform faster as they use CRC checksums. Such tools produce incorrect results and may lead to permanent loss of data. For example, the CRC or checksum of the file that many such tools are using may identify completely different files as duplicates.
  2. Similar Files – This mode can find similar documents. It is very precise, as a result, it is the slowest of all. In short, you should use it on a smaller subset of files. This is mode can find similar excel, word, txt, pdf, archive and other documents. It can not find similar photos or similar audio files. This article: Which Duplicate File Finder To Choose? explains why we have developed dedicated tools for those tasks.
  3. Similar File Names – this is a fast scan mode that can find similar or duplicate file names. For example, it is useful if you want to find files that are named like: “My Essay (1).doc”, “My Essay March.doc”, “My Essay 2019.txt” and so on. A tutorial for the above two modes is available here: Find Similar Files and Similar File Names
  4. File Size – searching for duplicates by file size is not a reliable method. However, in many cases, it can be helpful. It is extremely fast and you can use it for very large drives. If the files are large the chance for two files to be different and to have exactly the same size gets very low. In conclusion, for large files it is acceptable to use it. As always we do recommend that you review the results prior to removing any files.
