I used my camera in continuous mode and timer mode. I want to be able to tell which ones were from timer and which ones were in continuous. Is there a way to see that?

  • What software and camera are you using. I can see that info using digikam and my 5d Mark ii but what other cameras save might vary. – lijat Dec 30 '18 at 6:30

    It depends on your camera and possibly what firmware version you are running or even a third party firmware such as Magic Lantern. – Michael C Dec 30 '18 at 16:07

    Hi, please specify what camera you are using. So far, this is a bad question. – null Dec 30 '18 at 22:42

In the pictures from my EOS 70D, software (exiftool) shows a Drive Mode EXIF data which is coherent with the way the picture was taken:

  • Continuous for pictures extracted from a burst (another application reports Continuous, low),
  • Timer for a picture taken with a time (but it doesn't tell how long was the timer)

In practice the most comprehensive source of EXIF data for all brands of cameras is the ExifTool documentation. It appears that the Drive Mode above is actually a compound of Timer and ContinuousMode fields in Canon cameras.
