    Hi,

    I've been having some issues with getting the exif info that I'm
    after. I can take bulb exposures in the order of hours, and in
    canon's FileViewer, I see the exposure as x thousand seconds, or
    whatever I had, and it all looks fine, no matter whether I'm using
    jpeg or raw.

    But when I dump the exif, in anything, either photostudio,
    breezebrowser, my own perl scripts, anything, the shutterspeed always
    comes up as 1/0 or -2^16 or something equally useless.

    Does anyone know where canon is really keeping this info? I know it
    is somewhere, but I'm not getting very far with my hex dumping and
    experiments.

    replies to karl_AT_tweak.net.au would be much appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Karl P

    The Exif specification.

    I downloaded v 2.1.5 (build 263) from our local mirror (powerup, Brisbane
    Australia) and it works just fine on Win 98SE. Try using the same source as
    me, it might be a slightly older version than the one you got. Should be
    1,664 Kb.
