    I use a Nikon D70 storing images in NEF format.
    Does this camera (or any other brand and format combination) have the
    ability to
    store the exposure in the file header?

    .....when I use photoshop and/or gimp I currently have no way to know
    what exposure was used
    for which file without making external notes somehow.

    Your NEF files all ready have this info in them and the jpgs you
    create with Photoshop do as well. File => File Info => Camera Data 1
    and Camera Data 2.

    All the info is contained in the EXIF data in your NEF files.
    If you are using Photoshop with Bridge, or Lightroom, you can use that
    data as sort & search criteria.

    Here is the exposure info displayed in Bridge.

    In PS menu, go to File ==> File Info. Then select "Camera Data."
