In iPhoto 6, Smart Albums are Smarter

The smart albums feature in iPhoto 6 has a new capability: you can use camera EXIF data as criteria for a smart album. This makes possible a lot of photo-corralling conveniences.

Create one smart album of all photos taken with your Canon camera, and another of all photos taken with your Sony.

Create a smart album containing all shots taken at an ISO speed of 400 or higher. Of all shots taken with the flash off. Of all shots taken at a slow shutter speed (a great way to quickly find all your outdoor night shots). Or a fast one.

Check it out. This is one of those little enhancements that will have a big impact on the way I manage photos.
