Exif Camera Serial Number

  1. Get Camera Serial Number Exif
  2. Canon Camera Serial Number Exif

Almost all DSLR cameras code the serial number into the EXIF info in the maker notes section. The reason most people don't see it in the EXIF info is that Adobe products all but ignore the maker notes section of the EXIF info. So if you are viewing the EXIF info using an Adobe product you won't see the serial number. It does not report a serial number to the camera. I have an EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS. The lens was introduced in 2005. My copy was made in March 2011. It does provide an lens serial number to the camera. I have an EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II. The lens was introduced in 2010. My copy was made in June 2010. I reports a lens serial number to the camera. 3) AND IF the EXIF data exist AND include the camera serial. You might know that in the past a copy of that picture, coming from that specific camera has been stored on your computer (if - say - you got the picture from a USB stick and uploaded it directly you won't find it on internal disk). EXIF Camera Info. EXIF Field Code. Exposure program. Spectral sensivity. Lens information. Finding Your Camera’s Serial Number Through EXIF Data Your camera’s serial number, in some form, will be embedded in the EXIF data of your images. You can either use your operating system’s built in tools or an online viewer like Get-Metadata.

Are you sure your looking at a serial number for both sources?
I checked my 40D and the EXIF from a picture today and they match.

Are you looking at the serial number for the body? I also see a serial number labeled as 'internal serial number' that is only 8 characters long.

I have a 50D and my serial number is 10 digits long, and inside of DPP is shows the exact same 10 digit serial number.
If this is a new camera, I'd go back to the store and ask them to explain it. Sounds sort of funny. I got my camera in Jan of this year, and if your serial number has only 8 digits, then it sounds like a fake to me.

A fake 50D? That's impossible.
What number is on the warranty card? on the box?

I'd do the following.
1. Call dateline.
2. Contact the seller.
3. Scream.
4. Eat ice cream.
any of those in no particular order

I suck at Photoshop.

How odd. I've just checked my 400D, 40D, 50D and 5D and they all match the exif in DPP.

what could be the reason for the missmatch

I've no idea. The only thing I can imagine is that the serial number is embedded in the electrickery of the main board and perhaps that has been replaced for some reason or another. I know it's slightly different, but I have a lens which has a different serial number on the outer case to that of the internal chassis That's because Canon replaced the complete internals of the lens whilst it was under warranty.

Contact Canon and see what they have to say about the serial numbers. Obviously, if they are different only one is valid. It's possible that you have a stolen camera and a fake serial number tag has been applied to the camera.
I deal ONLY with reputable dealers, avoiding this sort of problem among many others.
