exif, exiftags, jhead, and exiv2 are all pretty decently
straightforward to use.  jhead outputs the least by default, so you
might end up having to read the man page a bit if you need more than
the basics (what fields do you need?).  I actually kinda like the
output of exiv2.

To be honest, just run the following, get a drink, and when you get
back (1-2 minutes) give each a try, uninstall what you don't need:
port install exif exiftags exiv2 jhead
