I've got a windows program that reads the EXIF info, but it only tells me aperture and shutter speed - not ISO. As I want to submit for a challenge, I'd need this, wouldn't I? ^_^
Is there a setting in my camera I'm missing (it simply says "Iso Hi"), for it to save this information, or is it something else?

*feels stupid*

It's not required info.

thanks jfriesen, I've installed it. :D

it gives me more info than the windows viewer, that's for sure - but now I feel *really* stupid as I can't see ISO there either?

If you use Windows XP, wou can access directly the EXIF information:
-right clic on the picture in explorer, and then Properties
-select Summary tab
-clic Advanced

Yeah.. Just look for ISO Speed Ratings (in Opanda Exif Viewer)

I cant see my ISO either. Usually what I do is (if the setting is not on automatic, but i never use that setting anyway) try and remember what ISO speed I used. :) Most of the time I keep it to one, like 50.

there must be something's off, because an image taken a long time ago with another camera clearly tells me the ISO, while the images taken with my new camera don't...

but if it's not required info, I suppose I can let it slide for now.

it still irks me.

I think it's because you have edited your file.. Be sure it's the original picture you are viewing..

The camera manufacturers don't all put the info in the same fields, and I've found that different EXIF-reading programs will extract different amounts of information.

Most cameras set to "Auto" or "Hi-ISO" usually will not show the actual ISO value used, just that it was in that mode. Also, sometimes the number which shows up in the EXIF field is a code, not the reading; for example, with my Canon S3 IS you get numbers like this:

16464 = ISO 80
16484 = ISO 100
16584 = ISO 200

I usually use IrfanView (Windows) to read the EXIF -- is you want, you can email me a file and I'll see if I can find the EXIF info.

sure thing! if you PM me your e-mail, I will send you an image. :)

and oscarmeyer - no, I haven't edited it, and not used any software to transfer from camera to PC. simply opened the camera in explorer and then clicked and dragged to a folder on my PC.

Might be your camera not giving the value..
