What is NEF?
Nikon Electronic Format
NEF is a RAW image format that is used in Nikon cameras. NEF files can be uncompressed or compressed in a lossless form. Images in the NEF format store the image data captured by the camera sensor and contain image metadata (information about the camera, settings, lens, etc.)
NEF files can contain 12-bit or 14-bit data, which allows for a great tonal range. Such settings as white balance, exposure, hue, and sharpening are stored as an instruction set. In the editing process, you can change these parameters without altering the original RAW data – this means you caneasily undo edits and return to the original set.

What is BMP?
BMP is a raster file format used for storing 2D bitmap digital images. Such images are device-independent, which allows transferring BMPs from one device to another.
.bmp, .dib, .rle.
The format supports monochrome and colored images and can process up to 16.7 million colors. A BMP file consists of fixed-sized structures (file header, DIB header, and extra bit masks) as well as variable-sized structures (color palette, Gap1, pixel array, Gap2, and ICC Color profile).
