F828 Q's: AE Lock & EXIF data
1. AE Lock -- how to maintain setting across multiple images?
When taking panorama pictures it's best to use the same exposure setting for each frame in the panorama. I thought the 828's AE Lock button would allow this, but it doesn't seem to work that way. What happens is the locked exposure is used for the first image, but after it's taken the AE Lock turns off. Is there a way to keep the same exposure setting over a series of shots?
2. Does digital zoom EXIF data exist?
The viewer I use for managing images (FotoTime) does not display any EXIF data for digitally zoomed pics. For instance, I've taken some good pics at 7X and 14X (5MB and 3MB image capture) but there is nothing in the EXIF info that indicates this. Is that because the data is not there? Or is my viewer just not displaying it?
