What is the .EXIF file type?

Exif is commonly used as an abbreviation of 'Exchangeable image file format for digital still cameras.' It is a JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information Technology Association) standard, defining a uniform way for digital cameras to save both image files and ancillary data for each image (metadata).

Exif metadata include a range of variables such as camera make and model, shutter speed, ISO number, target distance, aperture, white balance, exposure, flash status, GPS location etc. Such extensive metadata provide information about the image and help perform correct post-processing, especially while printing.
