They use a modified version of TIFF, as their raw container, and TIFF has a mechanism to tell if the files are big endian or little endian. It is also required in the TIFF specification to be able to read both big and little endian, but you usually write in your native endiannes.

BTW, arm processors can be little or big endian, some even can switch modes (usually one pin of the chip tells how to work), but I don't see any reason to prefer one over the other in the case of a camera.

OOPS quoted the wrong Post (mea culpa) , Sorry meant to quote OP

I think you got that backwards Big endian is most significant bytes first
