Is there a way to tell by reading EXIF data or other data whether or not the Image Stabilization was on or off for a particular image?

I'm using EXIFToolGUI which gives a lot of data - perhaps I just haven't found the correct entry for IS??

My PowerShot does record the image stabilization setting in the EXIF information, but my EOS DSLR does not. I can't really think of a reason why the lens would tell the camera that IS is on or off, or why the camera would want to know this, so I doubt it works with any camera/lens - but I could very well be wrong.

I don't believe any of the dSLRs record that info, no.

I think it would be nice if the exif data could indicate which externally mounted lens was used.

We have not ever heard of this being part of exif data.

what? You mean which lens was used to take the picture? Exif generally does record that.

You may want to look at a program like EXIFTool GUI, http://u88.n24.queensu​.ca …dex.php/topic,2​750.0.html (external link)

Under the "Maker Notes" it does show which lens was on the DSLR as well as a lot of other camera specific data.

Too bad it doesn't show the IS=on/off - I just shot a number of images and found the IS was off - no wonder my slow shutter speeds were blurry.

It looks like the Nikon D5100 does include the setting of VR (their name for Image Stabilization) in the EXIF data, based on a picture I found on a review site.
