Hi, is there any way to find out how far was the camera to the object , just by looking at the photo file info?

Many cameras provide distance info in the EXIF data, but it is often not very granular (only a few bits) or accurate. I suggest using a laser rangefinder for meaningful distance.

Thanks.
I like wild life. Quite often, seeing an excellent image of bird, I wonder how far the bird was from the camera. I look at the file info, but there is no way I can find this info. I wish I could!

You could "do the math".

If you know the size of the bird species, and the focal length used ... the size of the bird in the frame / relative portion of the frame, you could figure out the approximate distance.
