I have had an Olympus C-8080WZ for about two months. The information about each picture taken is very useful but I can't seem to discover what focal length was used. Many of the pictures on the MyOlympus site have this information, so where do I find it? Please help!

Should be somewhere in the EXIF data. I use IrfanView (with EXIF plugin), and by going to Image>Information>EXIF info I can see that there is an EXIF tag called FocalLength. This reports the true focal length, so you'll need to multiply by 3.6 (your camera's focal length multiplier) to get the 35mm equivalent. The EXIF specification also includes a tag called FocalLengthIn35mmFilm, but my camera (c-740) doesn't appear to support it. If the c-8080 does, you won't need to do the math - just refer to this tag.

So find yourself a viewer with good EXIF support, and you'll get what you need!
