    i need to be able to have a search field when i push the add button in a finder window spotlight search that says name: does NOT contain. that would make things easier for me. i have 2 digital camera's and i wanted to find all the pics taken on my new one, i typed in the name of the camera "cybershot DSC-P71" and it says no search results. when i type in the name of the NEW camera though "cybershot DSC-M1" it shows the pics from it. i don't know wat my mac is recognising the old camera as, but i wanted to search for cybershot, that doesnt contain -m1 to find the pics on my old camera but to my dissmay there is no field like this. it seems to me like it should be automactic to have a field like this. this is very silly and i'm dissappoointed

    look at the exif data. you can do something like this.

    "cybershot* -m1"

    see if that does it for ya. -aword says basically to "not m1"

    there's a lot of search stuff hidden in there, look around online or someone here might point ya in the correct direction
