Default jfif or exif?

When saving images in Nikon Scan 3 and now in Nikon View 5 we have the JPEG options between JFIF or EXIF compliant.
Wich are the differences? Wich is best?
Thanks

well being the owner of a CS4000ED i save my slides as tiff to work on. i do this because i'm going to go to print need highest image quality available.

jpg exif- is just supporting the exif tagging and it will embed the data about the scan within the scan
resolution
colorspace
day date
pixel x/y dimensions and such

jpg jfif- is the defacto standard jpg format no tagging. in other words a normal jpg.

did that help?

PS- there is an issue going on up here as to who owns the patent rights to jpg so you will see some nomenclature (wording or discription) changes for the same thing its still a jpg.

Thanks sjms, it was clear!
Do you know about a Photoshop plugin to save file in JPEG-EXIF format?

your camera produces EXIF data and embeds it into the image. PS 7 supports that data and continues to keep it on the image even after manipulation. so you save the data automatically.

PS 6 did not support EXIF and generally ignored it and if you saved it as the original you lost it.

so simply if you are using PS6 or below it's time to update to PS7

aren't acronyms fun?
