does anyone know if it's possible to create exif data for film ?

what i mean is...

i am shooting on black & white film.
then i process the film.
then i scan it in.


once it is now in digital form, can i create exif data for it?

when i view one of the above images in flikr, i can see exif data, but it obviously only lists the file information, such as dpi, creation date, time, etc..

is there a way to edit this file, and add in some of the info that would normally be found on exif from a digital camera... ie: the iso, shutter, aperture, flash, camera model, etc...

i'm keeping notes in a notebook with every shot, but i would like to add this data to the image if possible.


example....

I'd be interested in the answer to that as well.

Are you on a Mac or a PC? I haven't played around with it on my Mac, but on my PC, I can right click, choose Properties, then choose the Details tab, and I can change/add SOME of the Exif data, but not all of it. For instance, I can change the name of the camera, but not the f stop or the focal length.
No reason I'd really want to with my digital photos, but I also can't ADD that information if it's missing.

I'm sure there must be another way, but I don't know what it is.
I googled it, but only looked at the first few results--looks like there are some specific programs that you can get to allow you to edit the exif data, but if there are ways to do it without those programs, they are further down in the google results I got.

Can't you right click on the file, go to properties and add whatever you want there?

Some of the later Nikon film cameras had that capability,maybe the F5,F6 or F100 I think.
They had a slot for a memory card that recorded all the info for each shot to be read after you removed the film for developing

I had an F100 and no slots for that camera.

If your using PS to work with your scanned images you can go into info and add as much info as you wish. I have never tried it with a scanned negative, but it works with files and helps me keep track of added tips i might want to remember later on.

Ken Rockwell, the man who rates equipment he has never used. REALLY! I own the f100 and there is no way to place a memory card of any type in that camera.

Opanda software will allow you to create and edit EXIF info at will.

Interesting, I use Opanda in my classes for reading the metada, never knew one could create or add. I will have to take another look. Thanks for the tip

The F5, F6 and F100 don't have memory slots, as ann says. They can, however, be connected to the MV-1 data reader. I remember thinking 'somebody might find that useful' when it came out. My F2AS can also be connected to the WTF-1 Wireless Transmitter F-series, but it is very difficult to get the 14 inch Winchesters for it.

At least one Minolta Maxxum (7xi maybe?) wrote some exif into the spaces between frames on the negative. Just shutter speed, aperture, and I think focal length though (that's really all you would need to know though...).

edit
It's the Maxxum 9000.

Well,helen ws right and I was not paying attention but you finally forced me to go and look.Here is the link to his review of the F6.
I probably didn't read it too carefully because while thinking that it would be a nice feature to have I don't really expect to live long enough to own one.Ron G

I had forgotten all about that connection plug on the camera, but it wouldn't have crossed my mind at the time to put it to use.
