EXIF Data
« on: December 06, 2010, 07:10:27 am »
Is there a reason why the lens info is not an option on EXIF data? Meaning to show what model lens it was shot with? I think that info is embedded in the EXIF data. At least the focal length range of the lens is, for example 17-35mm. This would at least give someone an idea of what type of lens the image was shot with. Very important bit of info for most budding photographers. If it is possible it would be great to have this added. Also, some of the EXIF data headings show up funny, for example:

FNumber - Would be better as "F-Stop Number"
ISOSpeedRatings - Would be better as "ISO Speed"
DateTimeOriginal - Would be fine as "Date Shot" or "Date Taken" and would be better placed at the top right under camera Model
FocalLength - Would be better as "Focal Length".

Also, on FNumber and FocalLength you have this slash after the number followed by the number 1. This is confusing for people as it serves no purpose or meaning.

Many thanks.

Also, I have FNumber data showing up as 63/10 on a shot with an F-Stop setting of 6.3

I am able to figure it out, but others may not find it that obvious.

Can you attach a lens info picture that has that information and I can get it added to the next update.

Any suggestions on the names of the settings would be great as I do not know what most of them mean so left them as is from the picture data

You mean you would like me to attach a photo which has the EXIF data within? If so, see attached.

The Exif Data I am using on my Forum is what I mentioned above and how it should be written. Most of the other EXIF data is not really important. People really want to know 6 things: Aperture Setting/F-Stop (Same Thing), Shutter Speed, ISO Speed, Focal Length, Lens, and Camera.

If you look at the photo posted on the attached link you will see the EXIF Data I am using:

http://www.photographythailand.com/Forum/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=1817

The EFIX data for the above picture on my forum is:

Model    Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II
Exposure Time    1/200
FNumber    63/10
ISOSpeedRatings    200
DateTimeOriginal    2010:12:04 13:56:52
FocalLength    17/1

Ideally it should look like this and in this order:

Date Of Shot:   2010:12:04 13:56:52
Camera Model:    Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II
Lens:         17-35mm
Focal Length:    17mm
Aperture Setting:    F/6.3
Exposure Time:    1/200
ISO Setting:    200

Notice on the Aperture number you need to add a decimal point between the 6 and 3, put an "F/" in front of the number, and get rid of the slash after the number. On focal length, get rid of the /1 as well and put "mm" after the number instead.
