27. text data
It's embedded data. Basically a string of text lines that tell you things like what the exposure was, what the shutter speed was, ISO, White Balance, etc. It's really just a way for photographers to see what went right (or wrong) with the shot. Obviously, the date the shot was taken is part of that data. But if the date is set wrong on your camera, the EXIF data will look fine... ie. no manipulation. It's easy to fake dates with a camera... just change the date in camera. It's only if you alter it after the shot was taken will someone be able to tell.
