    One of my personal favourites is a shell extension I found over at
    steves-digicams.com ages ago, it's freeware. There are many different
    proggies around to view EXIF, I liked this one because you could look at the
    EXIF with having to launch any other programs.

    When you right click a file in Windows and bring up properties you get added
    an "EXIF Tags" tab which gives you most of the commonly used things you
    might want from the EXIF data.

    I have it here if you want me to shoot you a copy, can't find it on Steves
    anymore ?

    There is also one for Windows 2000 here which looks even quicker ... might
    grab it now myself.:

    called "EXIF InfoTip"

    wow, according to that program, some of my very low light photos were taken
    with an exposure time of 159794881/268435456 of a second.

    now /that's/ accuracy! ;-)

    It was with a Vivitar ViviCam 3640 - nothing expensive at all! There are no
    real settings to deal with other than basic +/- a couple stops of exposure
    control. I just use this cam to take pics at school and around the place...
    Still - some of the other photos were more reasonable with their exposure
    times (1/64th etc) - I wonder where this accurate fraction has come from.
