What is a PEF File?

PEF stands for Pentax Electronic format. It is a raw image format used in Pentax Digital Cameras. PEF file format basically represents what the camera see and feel. That means a lot of image data with no color adjustment and loss of details. Like other raw image formats, normal bitmap graphics editors can't process PEF images. But applications like AfterShot Pro can process PEF files with ease.
