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 might have missed the obvious here, but Adobe Bridge lets your view a wide range of metadata parameters as part of several of the work spaces.

You can view the metadata in Irfanview. It’s a free download at www.irfanview.com
