- In many cases, the location where you captured an image…can be a key piece of the metadata…that you want to preserve for your images.…In fact, and sometimes it's just critical…to have that information.…I, for example, travel considerably for my photography.…And the location is often critical.…It's often the key reason that I was there…taking pictures in the first place, the location itself.…And so, I often like to be reminded…of where that location was.…Maybe I want to go back to that location at a later date.…And so, a camera that is able to record…that location information automatically…represents a very convenient feature.…

Metadata may not be glamorous, but it's a priceless tool for managing and organizing photos. Your camera records metadata with every shot: the date, time, camera and lens settings, and much more. You can also add metadata using programs like Adobe Lightroom.
