Right now, digital cameras either store the raw CCD output, or convert it to 
The JPEG conversion loses information. The new Adobe proposal is for 
something to which the digital camera could convert the CCD output, which 
would contain the same information as the current Camera Raw, but in a 
format that is the same for all cameras.

Of course it will work: if the camera can make a JPEG or a TIFF, it can make 
the new Adobe format. It's not supposed to be what the CCD produces, nor 
replace JPEG or TIFF, but be what the flashcard stores instead of raw CCD 
output. There are no losers in this: no one is required to use it, and to 
any software that currently can process Camera Raw files, this is just one 
more format to add to the dozens already supported.
