For TIFF, the 16 bit RGB values are demosaiced.
    I see that. much appreciated for your idea. hmm... not really sure about the demosaiced word but i'm gonna find out

    haha! no worries bout the territories stuff. i mean, this is more of a general discussion in file format

    and yeah... in the olden days people had to spend lots of cash just to get some overrated "high" capacity cards (technology in the olden days) to shot RAW format. LOL

    RAW at first was adopted by canon, called CR(canon raw) and CR2 is the improved version (the current format in most dslr nowadays)
