To create a logbook page, I click "Save and Edit" add other information about each picture as appropriate.
Most JPG files from digital cameras contain EXIF data. EXIFLOG also retrieves EXIF data from Canon CR2 and MOV files and many TIF files, as well as other formats in which it can recognize EXIF data blocks.
EXIFLOG also provides summary information for AVI video files, including the number of frames, frame rate, format, bit depth, and codec. Since AVI files do not encode the date and time, the file creation date and time are used.
Version 2.3 adds "Save and Edit" and the option of skipping a line where there appears to be a break in the series of exposures. Version 2.4 has minor improvements that help performance under Linux (Mono). Version 2.5 corrects the algorithm for reading the noise reduction setting on Canons and adds readout of noise reduction setting on Nikons.
I currently use and develop EXIFLOG under Windows 10. However, EXIFLOG is compatible with Windows XP SP3 and up. It requires the .NET Framework 4 Client Profile, which is probably already present on your computer, but if not, can be downloaded here.
Installation: The installers are provided in .zip format because some browsers, including Microsoft Edge, give warnings when you download installers (.msi files). Download the zipped file and open it, then click on the .msi file.
You may get a warning that the software is "not commonly downloaded and may harm your computer." That is common with scientific software and anything that isn't mass-marketed; it does not mean that anything harmful has actually been found. If you wish, you are welcome to virus-check the .msi file before launching it.
Older versions are provided for experimentation with older operating systems.
To run under Linux or MacOS, install Mono. Under Linux, install the packages mono-complete, gtk2-engines-murrine, and gtk2-engines-pixbuf. Then download and unzip the executable (EXIFLOG.exe) and start it with the command mono EXIFLOG.exe or by right-clicking and choosing "Open with Mono runtime." The procedure under MacOS should be similar.
Current version (2.5) downloads:
EXIFLOG 2.5 installer (code signed; may give warning in some browsers)
EXIFLOG 2.5 installer (code signed, zipped)
EXIFLOG 2.5 executable (code signed, zipped)
EXIFLOG 2.5 source code
Note: Considerably more EXIF information can be read with Phil Harvey's ExifTool, which I heartily recommend.
