How do I access the Exif data for my D7100? I have looked for it many times but obviously in the wrong place. The D7100 has two data cards and I have one saving Raw and the second Jpg. I have only looked at the data from RAW files. I'm interested in what is in my Exif, especially my shutter info.
TIA
Joe

I use Faststone Image Viewer and if you open a photo in the program and put your mouse cursor over the right hand side of the photo it will display the Exif info

If you happen to use IrfanView, open the file and click on Image/Information

I'm sure you will get more choices.

Download the images to your computer. On a Mac, right click, select "get info." Windows is similarly easy; no special software needed. Are you learning to edit your raw yet? You should have an option in your editor of choice, also.

Question: where are you viewing the raw data, per your opening comment?

I use Light Room Classis and just getting into Photoshop (slowly). Should I be looking at RAW images or jpeg?

In the LR Library Module, select any single digital image in the catalog. Display the right-side panel and assure the MetaData section is enabled. From the drop-down list, select EXIF. What is displayed is not all the EXIF values that number into the 100s. But, a large quality of the frequent used values are then displayed.

Apple Preview on any Mac can display most metadata. Nikon’s own free downloadable software is the best option for Nikon files. It’s on their website.

EXIF is in the raw file because the raw file contains at least one JPEG preview that has the EXIF table in it.

If you use Photoshop you can use that but I think the Nikon NX Studio would give you the most EXIF information from a Nikon camera and the software is free.

Additionally in Mac preview you can extract the EXIF DATA by pressing Command "I" for any given photo that you are viewing.

Jeffrey's EXIF Viewer is my favorite, but it gives you way more information than you probably want.

Exactly! I was about to suggest that.

Yep. Preview is *very* useful.

Plain old free Picasa will display everything including the lens model, ISO setting, lens manufacturer, total shutter activations for my Nikon cameras, all kinds of stuff I’ve never heard of. However, I don’t think it will show the focus point like nikon’s View NX will.
