I am a novice photographer, and based on your excellant article I purchased a Canon S200. I'm trying to duplicate the shooting parameters that you quoted in the article but have difficulty relating the automaticsetting with the specific f-#s and shutter speeds. For example, when you state that: "The exposure was 1/2 second at f-2.8, set automatically by the camera in program mode" was this information provided by the S200 or the a header in the jpg graphics file

    As you probably know from my other writings, I use iPhoto to manage my images. When I'm in that application, I can click on any photo, hit CMD-I, and get that image's metadata, including the exposure information. You can also retrieve the metadata in Photoshop, or even standalone metadata apps.

    Even when I'm using a more simple camera, such as the Canon S-200, I like to know what exposure combinations produce my favorite pictures. This is helpful when I want to repeat the effect with another camera.

    Hope this helps ...
