Day 6 – EXIF Data


What is EXIF Data? EXIF stands for Exchangeable Image File and stores information regarding pictures taken with a digital camera. The data contained in this file includes shutter speed, exposure compensation, F number, metering system used, if a flash was used, ISO number, date and time the picture was taken, white balance, auxiliary lenses that were used, and the resolution. Some images may even contain GPS information if they were taken from a cell phone. This information can assist you in determining why your photograph did not turn out the way you would have liked. It will also help you debunk if something paranormal was captured or not.

Here are links to two websites with more information about EXIF data, how it can be used in relation to paranormal investigating and what exactly each of the pieces of information contained in the file are. The first link is: http://voyageips.com/…/using-exif-data-on-paranormal…/and the second link is: http://parafpi.com/photo_analysis.html
