S2IS - High Speed Shutter Question

Holy smokes, some of you guys on these threads are just so frickin smart.  I have a very basic question that will probably bore you...

I'm trying to take some high speed photos.  So I set the override shutter speed to 1/100k and the value factor to 1.  Enum type = Ev Step.  I haven't changed anything else.  Then I toggle out of the <alt> mode so I can start taking photos. 

In the top left part of the screen it reads TV:1/100k.  But when I push the shutter half way down, the bottom of the screen reads 1/3200 for the shutter speed.  I'm assuming this is because this is the highest speed the camera can normally do and it doesn't have the internal software to read 1/100k.  Or am I doing something wrong? 

When I review the properties of the photo after it's been taken, it lists a shutter speed of 1/3200.  Is there any way to tell what the actual shutter speed it took the photo at?

thanks

You are doing right. There is no way to tell the shutter speed from exif info. If you are an expert you read the histogram and judge yourself.

Yes you are right. I missed the point. I was thinking of ISO override.

By the way CHDK to EXIF seems to have a bug or I may say that it does not have a check. If by mistake you run the utility twice in the same folder, you get garbage ISO data recorded. (ISO 80 records as ISO 800)

So now I'm confused about the "deleted" comments.  Should I ignore those replies because they're incorrect and wait for a different response?

You are right.

And when you review the EXIF data in your computer it still shows 1/3200 because the "real" value is not recorded in the standard tag but in a tag called "Maker notes" which some EXIF readers can't retrive.

If you want it to be displayed in your prefered pictures management software you can use a program called exiftool: ExifTool by Phil Harvey Copy the information from the Maker notes to the correspondig EXIF tag with the following command:

Code: (dos) [Select]
exiftool -overwrite_original -exif:ExposureTime<MakerNotes:ExposureTime
Or for the ISO:

Code: (dos) [Select]
exiftool -overwrite_original -exif:iso<iso
If you want to do it automatically for every picture you can create a BAT file (in windows) with this:

Code: (dos) [Select]
@echo off
C:\apps\exiftool\exiftool -k -overwrite_original -tagsfromfile %%f.JPG -rating -title -creator -xmp:source -rights -location -xmp:city -country -countrycode -people -subject -description -r -ext DNG DNGs

Where "DNGs" is a folder with all the DNG files.

This is just an example of MY bat file. Please read the Exiftool manual and make test before modify your master files
