Having had my EOS 7D in for repair, I started shooting yesterday without doing a full check of the settings. It was only when I got home and downloaded the images that I realised the date had been reset to 01/01/2000 00:00:00 and reset itself again each time the camera was switched off/on. This might not matter to most, but due to the nature of my 365 project, I like to get the EXIF data on my files right.
There are two ways to launch the editor. Firstly as a standalone programme. You get a navigation pane on the LHS where you can navigate to find your files, and EXIF info for each on the RHS (click for full sized version – left).
Or, find the file with Windows explorer, and right-click > Properties (shown on right). This gets you to the usual Windows properties popup with an extra EXIF Pilot tab.
From here, just hit the big “edit EXIF/IPTC” button at the bottom and away you go:
There are also batch-editing capabilities, if you want to get really fancy – but that only comes in the paid-for Pro version.
If you’re interested, here’s the link to download the various versions.
