NAR file extension - Nokia Smart Cam archive

What is nar file? How to open nar files?

File type specification:

Mobile phones related file type icon Mobile phones related file type

File extension nar is nowadays mainly used for a special photo archive created in Nokia devices when a photo is taken using the Smart Cam feature with burst mode enabled, mainly (and possibly only) in Lumia devices.

What this mode of Smart Cam does, is that it shoots a sequence of digital photos and picks the best for you. All of the photos are stored within a .nar file in your device. This is basically a ZIP file that contains the whole sequence of photos taken by Smart Cam.

This nar file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.
