EXIF (Exchangeable Image File Format) is a standard for storing interchange
information in image files, especially those using JPEG compression. Most
digital cameras, including mobile phones, now use the EXIF format.
The format is part of the DCF standard created by JEIDA to encourage the
interoperability between imaging devices. In addition to the standard EXIF
fields, MetaCam also supports vendor-specific extensions from Nikon, Olympus,
Canon and Casio.
This program is useful in forensics investigations.
