There is a jhead program, forgot which package installs that.

It extracts the EXIF data from any file that has EXIF.

# jhead ./large-flower/dscf4095.jpg
File name    : ./large-flower/dscf4095.jpg
File size    : 900105 bytes
File date    : 2009:05:31 16:23:52
Camera make  : FUJIFILM
Camera model : FinePix S5100
Date/Time    : 2009:05:31 16:23:51
Resolution   : 2272 x 1704
Flash used   : No
Focal length :  7.5mm  (35mm equivalent: 51mm)
CCD width    : 5.34mm

You can run that through grep and extract whichever fields make sense to
you.
