Default FZ150 and exif info...

Hi,
is there a software that can tell me whar kind of shooting mode I am using taking several pictures of the same subject.

I have this new cam and I take 3,4 pics in severa modes, IAuto, P, and so on.

Sometimes I forgot to write down which one I use in sequence.
Is there a software that can do this...

I tried "exiftool", but I could not make it work.

Any suggestions or explanation if exiftool is the best one?

Regards

If Photo Fun Studio came with your camera, you can use it: right click on a picture and get a thorough listing of settings.
I don't use this program for post-processing, but it's free and it gives you most all of the exif info you might need.
Hope this helps,
Bob

Another free software that you might like is FastStone Image Viewer 4.6, it offers simple post processing which is effective as well.

To see EXIF data load picture you want to see, and move cursor to extreme right hand side of screen, as far as I know this program does not let you alter the EXIF data.

Thanks for both answer..
I found out about Exiftool, and I already use Fast Stone viewer as my favorite.

I find Exiftool a bit messy though.. as all info are, imho, not listed in a "logical" way.
In the CD following the cam, there is Pana own software, which it also listed all the info.

I do not like it as viewer, and I will keep FS as default, but I can use the Pana soft for exif info only.

FS has also exif info but not complete as the other 2 ones.
Regards

How do you like the FZ150? I'd love to see some photos from it.

I like it.. I only took 80 pics and I like 99% of them.

P mode is reliable, IAuto can be a bit wrong, but generally is OK too.

Speed with RAW+JPEG is really nice (I have a class 10 card), I like the cam so far.
Negative things , so far are:

The options in the cam's menu, where important stuff is a bit hidden.

Slot for the HDMI and USB could be better and it's bit annoying to open and set wires into it.

I am a "beginner", but noise and quality are better than HS20EXR that I returned some months ago.

IAuto is good for newbies, P is good and allows you to experiment.
Video seems perfect in HD
AF speed is excellent in good light, OK in low light, flash is very good.
There is Hot Shoe and external Mic access.

RAW that I am using for the first time is good too.

I like the cam a lot, and I am sure that with time I will extract the best out of it for my needs.

The battery is good, cam is "small", not heavy and ergonomics is very good too.

Regards

P.S About photos, I have not uploaded any.
But in DPreview there are plenty of them and with the newer FW1.0, which is in my cam too.
