Dear colleagues:

A couple of questions I was hoping you would be able to help me with.

1. I remember a discussion at one of the newsgroups about the possibility to connect a portable GPS unit to a Nikon D2X digital SLR camera so that the GPS information would be embedded in every image. Is there such an option for making the same work on a Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II ? Is there a way to connect a portable GPS unit to the camera and capture GPS data ?

2. I’ve tried to view the metadata of image files created by my camera but have had no success. I had originally tried to use a regular text editor but wasn’t seeing anything intelligible. After speaking with someone who has more experience I was told that I should try a hex editor instead since the image is all stored in hexadecimal format. Do any of you know of a good hexadecimal editor or reader for Mac OS X that would be able to read the hex information contained in raw files and allow me access to it ? In case you know of other software outside of hex editors that will do the same I would appreciate the suggestion.

Any information and suggestions on software as well as hardware will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Joseph

I can’t help with question #1.I have several Canon digital cameras and the software that came with them will display the EXIF data if you push the right buttons. Have you experimented with the supplied software? Works for me.

Thank you for your reply.

I have tried several different EXIF viewers as well as Bridge and Photoshop CS2 which I am now running. They all display the "standard" EXIF data fields with their values or contents but not "all" the data that happens to be embedded in a digital image.

I am trying to find a way to look at all the data embedded in the digital RAW files produced by my camera and need the right software to do that.

Thank you again for your help.

Best regards,

Joseph

Besides the EXIF standard data, what are you looking for? AFIK, manufacturers regard the RAW data formats as proprietary – are you trying to extract pixel data?
