    The pictures that I have taken with the Surface have no EXIF data whatsoever. Am I doing something wrong?

    Other modern tablets/phones store not just date/time and camera settings (like aperture, shutter speed & ISO) but also latitude and longitude from the GPS.

    On the Surface I get zilch! Not even date/time!

    It's about as basic as it gets. The camera is for Skype and the like; not for photography.

    The same thing is happening with my friend's Acer W510! That tablet has an 8MP camera with flash! Surely that camera isn't just for Skype too...

    I think this is a limitation of the Camera App. In the options there is hardly anything. Is there a 3rd party camera app that can capture at least the very basic EXIF data?

    There is Date/time taken, Image size, and bit depth.

    The Surface RT does not have a built-in GPS receiver, so don't expect any location data. But yeah, I can make an app that can use triangulation to get the long/lat info.
