    I just read an interesting proposal by @reyers, in which he invites us to start sharing our EXIF information which every photo that we share here. Would you like this habit to happen? What are the benefits of having a visible EXIF information? Please share your thoughts with us. I'm asking because I don't care much about the EXIF information, but that is just my opinion and I want to hear yours as well!

    Just to clarify my comment which was made in the ST. I hadn't really intended to suggest every post should have EXIF info including camera and lens. I was really only referring to ST posts. Thinking back to when I first joined, all that info was very helpful. I can only assume that there are still members here that would too.

    A recent posting in Chit Chat had asked about what lenses others where using. There was a reasonable response to that posting. Unless posted images are links to Flickr, that info just isn't available.

    I for one would find it of interest to know what gear has been used in taking an exposure…especially lenses. It's only part of the image making process but it has importance unless you're a purist wack job that believes only pin hole cameras are real cameras.

    Limited Exif: Camera, Lens, Focal length, shutter speed and ISO.

    For Shark Tank only.

    I think it's a good idea to share EXIF in Shark Tank since it can help us give more adequate critique.

    Sometimes you just wanna see how a shot was taken or if it was cropped a lot. Helps you learn.

    We always used to have Exif as mandatory in the Shark Tank, it's especially helpful to learners, it would be a good idea to have it back again.

    Awesome, let's make it happen again and newcomers will do it as well.
