An Oct. 3 photo shows President Donald Trump at Walter Reed hospital. White House

President Donald Trump’s case of COVID-19 gave an obscure photo data technology called EXIF its 15 minutes of internet fame as people started scrutinizing photos taken of him this weekend at Walter Reed hospital. But what exactly is EXIF?


Load Error

In short, it’s a standard way cameras can embed metadata within a photo file. That data can include the camera model that took the shot, what exposure settings were used, where a photo was taken and, most pertinent in Trump’s case, the time the photo was taken.

That last point is of particular interest, since EXIF data from two Trump photos the White House released Saturday indicated they could have been taken 10 minutes apart. That fueled criticisms that the shots were staged photo ops. That, in turn, fueled debate

Local photography landmark goes up for sale again | News

Freelancer Nick Ellis used to drive all the way to downtown Bakersfield from his home in Taft to check out the latest in camera technology — to touch it, feel it in his hands — and, of course, ask a few questions of the experts at Henley’s Photo Inc.

“Henley’s was always the place that you went when you needed to buy something of quality, either prints or gear,” Ellis said.

But times change, and so do camera technologies. The Henley’s he and others remember as Kern’s pre-eminent photo shop is facing another substantial change, and its future is as uncertain as ever.

Early this year Henley’s left its second downtown home after 72 years in business. Now owner Jimmy Bunting, preparing for a new career in the medical field, is looking to sell.

“It’s a bittersweet transition for us and we hope that Henley’s will continue to be a

Perez Hilton has alleged that Lady Gaga “used him as a tool” to write “terrible” things about her pop star rivals, including Christina Aguilera.

The notorious blogger, whose self-named site was the lynchpin of the celebrity gossip industry throughout the 2000s, has claimed that his one-time friendship with the star led to “things I’m most ashamed of”.

In Hilton’s new memoir, TMI: My Life in Scandal, he claims that he “deliberately hurt” Aguilera after he and Gaga speculated that she had “copied [Gaga’s] sound and visuals” for one of her albums.

“I even went as far as to deliberately hurt Christina Aguilera just a few months after she had been kind enough to perform at my birthday party,” Hilton writes. “Why? Because Gaga and I thought Christina was copying her with the sound of her new
