Default Exif-ISO problem

I just got a new D100 which supplements my Fuji s1. I use
Paint Shop Pro8 for post production. When I examine my exif
info in PSP8 of shots taken with the D100 the iso information is
blank, but all other statistics are there. I check the shot in the
camera and the iso info is included with the picture.

My shots taken with the Fuji s1 show the iso on the PSP8 exif info.
Anybody have any reason why it wont show the D100 iso?

(my first post)

Are you sure you didn't resave the pictures?

PSP7 doesn't read or writ exif info, and you lose it as soon as you save. Maybe PSP8 reads the info and doesn't write it.

Also agreement between camera and software manufacturers about reading the exif info doesn't look too good to me. I have quite a few software packages that read exif info, and it's presented in different ways and with different bits missing in different packages.

The two best programs I use (both free) for inspecting the data from the camera are "Exifer" from http://www.exifer.friedemann.info/, and "Photostudio" from www.stuffware.co.uk.

Exifer has a wonderful facility for showing you only the *differences* in camera settings between two selected images.

Photostudio is the only package I have found that will allow inspection of the exif data, rotation and resizing, and then resaving in a file suitable for putting back on the camera, still containing the exif data. Other packages do save the exif data, but I find the camera then won't recognise the files and display them (e.g., via the AV output).

I think maybe I'm a victim of the above. It works for the S2 but not the D100.

Thanks a lot for the quick reply, the info and the web site referrals.
I'll check them out soon.
