Difference between a vector and bitmap graphics is that a vector is a format of a drawing whereas bitmap is a format of a photo. * the advantages of a vector is that the drawing can be stretched to any size without ruining the quality and bitmap is faster to display .Bitmap graphics as being stored in a literal fashion, then Vector Graphics, stored representative are their opposites.

The image on the sensor isn't any image format, when this analogue data is put through the A/D converter and saved they are saved in a bitmap container (Jpeg and Raw (NEF, CR2, PEF Etc.) are all bitmap formats) all images are either a bitmap or a vector graphic, out of the camera they are bitmap, but the data in the file can be opened as a Vector Graphic in some programs.

Bitmap data can be saved in a wide variety of file formats like BMP,TIFF,GIF.Bitmap images can contain any number of colors.A bitmap image depends on resolution in that it contains a fixed number of pixels to represent the image data.As a result, a bitmap image can lose detail and appear jagged if viewed at a high magnification or printed at low resolution.Bitmap images are best for representing subtle gradations of shades and colour such as in photographs.
