Default Interesting info in PhotoMe EXIF...

I got my K20 back from repair last week and weather hasn't been very cooperative of late so I haven't been taking too many photos, mostly test shots to see if it was going to give me any better results. They claimed they replaced the circuit boards and switches in the body. I'm thinking... how would I know if that was really the case or, were they just saying that?
Well, today I looked up the EXIF data on a recent shot and while looking I went to see what my shutter count was. It showed 187 clicks. Since I had almost 30,000 clicks on it before sending it in so, I checked further and found the manufacture date and internal serial number have changed, so apparently the parts they claim were replaced, actually were replaced.


Here is a screen capture of PhotoMe that shows the info for a shot when I first got the camera and when I got it back.

Note: the yellow high light area shows the comparison.
Then look below that where I high lighted in red. Apparently the new electronics provide more EXIF data.

That is nice to know, GW. Glad you got the camera back and hopefully you get the chance to check it out soon.

Sorry to ask such a newbie question, but where do you get all this exif data? the exif files with my photos have less than half that much data.

Hey Mtnman,
Are you using "PhotoMe" to read your data and do you have the latest up-date? if not check it out here http://www.photome.de/home.html
Only other thing I can think of is perhaps the K100 only supplies limited EXIF.
hope this helps.
