Missing EXIF Data?

  1. Any help explaining this is greatly appreciated. I am fairly new so still learning. I shot a few dozen pictures yesterday at a wedding (just for personal use and to pass along to them later). Anyways, looking at the pictures with EXIFER only some of them, perhaps 50%, have exif data. All the pictures were transfered from my D50 using the supplied USB cable, and I transfered as though it was an external storage device as in I highlighted the whole group of photos and dragged and dropped into a folder on my desktop (Windows XP Home). Seems weird to me that only 1/2 the photos have exif data.

    Perhaps EXIFER is missing something? Again, any help would be appreciated.
  2. Try another application, like Opanda's Exif reader.

    Did you edit any of them. Some programs/processes will strip the exif data. Photoshop "save for web", for example ,will.
  4. K tried Opanda's and the exif data is there. I opened both Exifer and Opanda and the ones that Exifer couldn't read are available with Opanda.

    Nope no editing, just transfered like I said.

    Thank you both for the help :smile:
