Default Software that shows what camera was used to take the pic?

Most viewers only display general info like date, size, dimensions, etc. Is there one that also reads what camera was used to take the picture?

ACDSee and many more do. These attributes are called "EXIF data" or "Matadata"(ACDSee). Look under proprieties .

Thanks. I downloaded the plugins for my viewer and it can now read EXIF files. Now another question. Does only the newer cameras write EXIF files? I notice my old Olympus camera does not.

Mention which Oly you used to use, and let's see what the deal is.

There are many software programs which read EXIF files - if you don't have IrfanView, maybe you might like to download it (freeware). Be sure to also download the file "allplugins.exe" and install it. IrfanView should be in every photographers tool box.

ACDSee doesn't read as much data in the EXIF header as Exifer:

Whilst we're on the subject, have you noticed when you write protect your files, ACDSee still renames or edits them, saves over them without putting up a windows warning? Even worse, I think it used to do this if you did an edit and exited the prog - so watch out!

Also, have you fathomed out how to get a slideshow to run consistently in forward (alphabetical order)? I think I sussed it and it has a lot to do with windows naming convention, but there's definitely a bug in both V4 and 5. what you see in folder display, doesn't guarantee the presentation order in slideshow.

Exifer does include a slideshow which presents consistently in the right order.

I have the Olympus C-1400 XL. Only 1.4 mp.

I use Acdsee for regular viewing and IrfanView for editing.
