Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Metadata display, part of Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) Essential Training.
Your camera stores a lot of data about every image that you take.…In addition to the date and time, it stores all of the exposure settings that…you used which makes it possible to later analyze exactly what happened during…a shot exposure wise.…This is often a great way to figure out what went wrong if you get a picture…that's got a bad exposure or is maybe out of focus.…You can view most of this metadata on the camera itself.…What's more, by using some of the analysis features that are built into the…camera, you can identify problems and possibly correct them while you're…still in the field.…
I'm going to go into Playback mode just like I normally would by hitting the Play button.…Here is the first image on my card.…If I hit the Info button, I can bring up a metadata display.…I can see that this is image number 1 out of 14 images on the card.…It was shotted at 60th of a second at f/5.6.…Here is the folder number and file name.…If I press the Info button again, I get even more metadata.…I can see that I was in Program mode.…
