Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Metadata display, part of Canon 60D 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 in to the…camera, you can identify problems, and possibly correct them, while you're…still in the field.…
By default, when I'm in Playback mode, I get this very simple metadata display,…which shows me the current image number that I'm looking at. I'm looking at image…number 10 out of 10 images on the card.…It shows me my shutter speed, and aperture and my folder number, and file name. But if…I press the Info button here, I get a second screen full of metadata, and this…shows me all sorts of things.…
