This EXIF tag have nothing to do with the camera model used, but only define if the ordering encoding was either "Intel type" ("Little Endian") or
"Motorola type" ("Big Endian")
In the EXIF encoding, the next two bytes after the two JPEG marker bytes indicates the endianess of the data stored in the Exif directories. It can be
"II", meaning that Intel ordering is used, then the byte order is "Little Endian", or "MM", meaning Motorola ordering is used, then the byte order is
The EXIF tags for the camera used are "Make" and "Camera Model Name" and are generally found for any JPEG photo.
Here, the camera model is a "Casio EX-Z33" which used the Motorola ordering for the endianess of the data stored in the EXIF directories.
Here, the camera model is a "Canon Rebel T2i" which used the Intel ordering for the endianess of the data stored in the EXIF directories.
As for OP's photo itself, here are some suggestions to try to define what's in this picture:
1- Do another shoot, like I said in my previous post:
Do another shoot during daylight from the exact same position, (yourself or some member of your family that lives here, no matter the camera
used in order to do this) but with other atmospheric conditions than those of that day (blue sky for example) and/or other hour of the day; just to be
sure to avoid this unwanted over-exposure effect this time.
2- Post another random shoot taken with the same camera and using the exact same process as Kerafyrm did for the "UFO" shoot, here on this thread.
This could help to compare the EXIF data and better understand why there's no (or so little) EXIF data.
Here's how EXIF data for a picture taken with the back camera
of an iphone4 should looks like (with the GPS on):
1- Encoding ordering endianess
2- Camera model
3- Technical tags (ISO, shutter speed...)
