What actual problem are you trying to solve?

comment Is Magic Lantern giving incorrect shutter counts on my Canon 500D?
Have you actually tried this with a 500D photo? I don't believe that Canon include the shutter counts in metadata.

comment Is there any tag for facetagging in metadata?
We strongly encourage updating old questions, not asking new ones on the same topic.

comment Settings on ISO and Aperture for Sunset on Canon 600D
How can this possibly be true given that the light at sunsets varies enormously?

comment What can cause blurry and out of focus images on a Nikon D5300 in no flash mode?
Just an FYI: imgur, which SE uses for its image hosting, always strips the metadata from images so you'll never get EXIF data on embedded images here.

comment Which lens cap do I need for an Olympus 14-45 f/3.5-5.6 lens?
Ah, turns out the 14-45 did exist as a kit lens for the EVOLT 500, but DPReview just doesn't know about it. I've updated the question a bit.

This is about the lens, not the camera

I can't find any Olympus 14-45 lenses. Do you mean the Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6?

comment What exactly is “base ISO” and how do I find what is base ISO on my camera?
-1: sorry, but this is wrong for at least some sensors. As Matt has noted, at least on some Canon sensors, things outside the whole stop sequence are produced in software, not hardware - so there is a fundamental difference between ISO 100 and ISO 125.

No. You want to read Matt's fantastic answer here.

comment How does software that extracts or views EXIF work?
The metadata is stored in the file. The tool reads the metadata. What more is there to say?

comment How can I extract the captions from Facebook albums?
This only seems to answer half the problem: how do you get the captions into Lightroom once you've got them out of Facebook?

Please improve the question you've already asked rather than asking a "new" one on the same topic.

comment How durable are zoom lenses?
Depends massively on how much care you take with the lens.

comment What cameras are the amaro, mayfair, walden instagram filters based on / inspired by?
As noted above, I've changed this question back to the original meaning of which cameras the filters are based on, so this answer unfortunately looks a bit out of place now. Hopefully the original poster will ask a new question in which case this will be a good answer :-)

Your edit has made this two separate questions - please keep each post to just one question. I'll revert the edit, but feel free to ask the second question in a separate post.
