I'm trying out iView as Picasa is very limiting. Something I ran into in Picasa was the inability to search EXIF it would seem. For example searching for exposure mode or focal length gave no results. However, I'm running into the same impediment in iView even though the manual says EXIF is included in the search. Many cameras are in the catalog such as Canon G5, S400, A610, A95, A75 - Minolta Dynax 5D - Olympus C8080, etc. and I've tried searching against a bunch of different fields visible in the info panel but no results. So I've gone back to using EXIF Image Viewer which makes sorting image files by EXIF data pretty easy but I'm sure I must be doing something wrong in iView as it would seem to be an important function for this class of program.

Welcome to the iView Forum. Since the Find feature does not include most of the Photo EXIF fields a workaround others have used is to use the List mode and have those fields displayed (Command-J). Then you can click the header of one of those fields to have it sorted so you can scroll down to get the value you're looking for.
Do you Twango?

Thanks for the reply. That'll work for now, is it likely that an extensive search of EXIF will be possible in future versions though?

That certainly would be a good item to present to the developers via the User Suggestions page.

Thanks for this suggestion. I had been looking all morning for an easy way to find all pictures that were taken with a specific lens in combination with a converter (giving a specific focal length), but just couldn't find it. This solved it.
