finepix software

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Hi all,

My X-S1 came with the Finepix software, in my view it is rather crappy and less useful than free software like Picasa or Faststone.

I have downloaded Finepix for the Exif image information. Other software programs provide basic settings like shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and mostly the wrong focal length, but not shooting modes and EXR settings for specific camera brands.

Does anyone know of a software program which offers the exact Exif data for different camera brands?

Cheers

Re: finepix software

Do you know PhotoME? It shows a lot but not all.
The finepix software is really not good.

ExifTool shows about everything there is to see in Fuji's EXIF data, including IPTC and XMP information and the manufacturer's Maker Notes. As it's a command line driven program, most people use ExifTool GUI to give it a user-friendly graphical interface.

Moxi,

FinePix is ... well, I'll be kind and just say that IMO it's rather "less than fine". Of course, feel free to choose your own descriptive adjective.

As for getting at the EXIF info ... Try EXIFTool and the accompanying EXIFTool GUI which makes the former (a command line utility) much more user friendly. It does show things like DR settings, EXR Modes, WB fine tuning settings, focus mode, focus point location, etc. under the maker notes.

Get it here: http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/ ... then scroll to the bottom of the page for GUI program and other add ons and related utilities.

I could sense you approaching. That's why I didn't have time to add the link.

Re: Irfanview

I'd like to put a vote in for irfanview. This shows most of the exif data, including DR values and macro mode, and also tells you how many colors are in your image, among many other features. Very powerful for a free program! Make sure to get the plugins exe along with the program!
