    When playing around with a particular file in windows explorer I was able to
    read the exif data that included the following figures:

    exposure speed 1sec
    exposure time 1/6 sec

    I have always thought that you set your exposure by establishing the size of
    the aperture (ie F4) AND utilising the time the shutter stayed open (ie
    1/6th of a second). What is the exposure speed.

    I just looked as the EXIF data in my canon image browser. It listed
    exposure time only. Do you have some other way of looking at your
    data---eg an image browser? I have hunch you have a fluke of some
    sort---maybe a Microsoftism??...;)

    digital photos, more and better computers,
    and never enough time to do the projects.

    So, back to the original question. What is the exposure time/shutter speed?
