Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Metadata display, part of Nikon D5100 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've used, which makes impossible 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.…
By default, camera displays some very basic metadata when I review my images.…I can see here that I'm looking at image number thirty of thirty.…I can see the compression and pixel dimensions of this image, the date and…time, and some file-naming information about the file name and folder that are…being used on the card.…There's other metadata that I can view, but before I can do that, I need to…activate a feature in my menu.…
