I am using Adobe Bridge to process RAW files and started shooting with flash. In reviewing the file's Metadata regarding flash usage/info. The only data shown is: "Return light detected, compulsory mode" under the Flash tab. I would like to see all the data of the flash settings, does Adobe Bridge or some other program that records and will display this info?
Here is a photo from tonight w/ an almost full moon for reference. I know I shot it w/ a flash and dialed the FEC down, but cannot remember how much and would like to know. I would also like to know what method, i-TTL, BL, FP, which I know were the settings on this image, but as I shoot more I won't remember as well as how far the distance was the flash shot.
Mike, Thanks. I located ViewNX, downloaded it and looking through it now. The one thing that I cannot find is exposure information, e.g. aperture/shutter info. I have scoured the different palettes and found nothing. Where are they storing this info?
The detailed Speedlight information is contained within the MakerNote section of the EXIF data, and this section is very specific to the camera manufacturer and model. Many editing programs ignore this data and remove it. I use ExifTool by Phil Harvey and ExifTool GUI for Windows on unedited images or only imgages edited by Nikon software.
Sample selected (reduced from full text org 169 lines) output for a camera mounted SB-800:
EXIFTool work with MAC, but it will be terminal window application. Phil's site list a lot of information about the EXIF tags for many file types and list a number of resources for extending the basic EXIFTool including a web based program to extract the EXIF data from local and web files, do not try a NEF file as the entire file is read before processing.
