Summary0000286: MIME of raw images detected as image/tiff
DescriptionRecently, `file` started to detect raw images (NEF and ARW tested) as image/tiff.
This breaks a lot of image viewing programs such as Gwenview, lximage, Okular, and many more.

This wasn't like that always, I remember being able to correctly detect raw images a month ago or so.

Thanks in advance.
Steps To ReproduceGet a raw image (eg.
run `file RAW_IMAGE` or `file --mime-type RAW_IMAGE`
The output will say that it's a image/tiff image when it should be image/x-nikon-nef
Additional Information`mimetype` recognizes the MIME correctly...
TagsNo tags attached.

I don't think that file(1) ever reported anything else but tiff for these files. They are tiff files after all...

you might be right, I just checked and the last time file got updated was something around May, way before this problem started happening (in KDE)
