HAL's test-pilots proudly displaying the WSI (Weapons Systems Integrated) Dhruv bolted with the more powerful 'Shakti' engine jointly developed by Turbomeca (France) and HAL. On the bottom centre you can see the THL 20mm gun turret housing the M621 low-recoil cannon, the white Pod in the nose centre houses the FLIR (forward-looking infrared), CCD camera & a target acquisition system with thermal sight and laser rangefinder.

Vishal, this is amazing!! The chowpa, the angle, everything is meant to be here. I suppose its the first shot of the Attack Version of Dhruv. My PC Nominee.

EXIF stands for Exchangeable Image File Format. It was developed by the Japanese Electronics Industry Development Association (JEIDA) in an effort to simplify and standardize the exchange of data between imaging devices and software. Exif is a variation of JPEG, used by almost all digital cameras to record extra interchange information to image files as they are taken. The type of information stored in a file varies by camera model, but it can include such things as date and time a photo was taken, resolution, camera settings used for the shot, amount of compression applied, color information, whether or not the flash was fired, shutter speed, name of the camera owner, and so on.

Most photo manipulation software released after 2001 supports the reading of Exif information, however, if you want to ensure that the information is retained within your picture files, you must use software that supports Exif. The Exif information is lost if you save a picture in a program that doesn't support it. There is also specialized software specifically for extracting and editing Exif data.

Please be aware that, while most photos displayed on JetPhotos.Net contain EXIF information, some do not.
