    Trying to learn settings so I'm starting to look at the EXIF info out of curiosity. I've discovered that my editor (PSP X2) doesn't read all the EXIF info it should.

    So my question is: is there a free utility out there on the Web that accurately reads EXIF?

    TIA :)

    I tried again, and with two different browsers, still no luck getting in. All I get is a "Problem Loading Page" error.

    Sounds like a nice utility. Can't wait to try it :)

    Just stuff like the ISO setting. It shows up in the camera, but not in the editor: it shows as "unknown."

    Just had a "dooh" moment... I installed the addon and it had me restart Firefox, and I lost this post! It's easy enough to use, but after looking at about a dozen shots from different dates and the like, it is telling me every shot was:

    1/400 shutter
    80 ISO
    and f9.7 aperture!

    So that one's not doing something right...
