    What camera and lens combo was this taken with?
    
    Image EXIF times usually refer to the start of the exposure, but of course you 
    first have to have a properly synchronised camera clock. If that is not the 
    case, your times can be way off. Most camera clocks run out of pace very fast 
    (seconds per day).
