  • Lens info metadata

    I hope one of you can help

    The L10 does not seem to record the properties of the attached lens like Olympus bodies do. You can see in the image file metadata from an Olympus body things like maximum aperture range and focal length range.

    In fact looking back at the shots I have taken with the L1, L10, and Leica Digilux 3, inspected via Lightroom 2, none of these cameras offer up the lens property information, only the usual aperture and focal length used for the actual exposure.

    The data could be in there, but simply not recognised by Lightroom. I have tried SilkyPix, which is the software bundled by Panasonic, but it's not any help.

    If anyone knows of an image viewer that can see the lens properties, I'd very much like to know about it!

    Re: Lens info metadata

    Looking at a bunch of L10 shots in Photoshop, I can see the max aperture as well as the shooting aperture and f-stop (which can differ with TC, etc.), and the focal length used, but the Lens line is blank on all. Must be a deliberate choice by Panasonic. Could be a bug that they've never been queried on though. Not everyone is as inquiring as you.

      Thanks fluff,

      Anyone else got any suggestions? I have a whole bunch of L10 shots that need sorting by lens type!

        If you're using a Windows PC have you tried using ExifToolGUI, see:- http://freeweb.siol.net/hrastni3/fot...xiftoolgui.htm
        (This uses Phil Harvey's well known command line utility called ExifTool, and if ExifTool doesn't show the info then it definitely isn't there!

        or else Kuso EXIF Viewer, see:- http://www.kuso.cc/exifviewer/

          Just to update. I'm using Windows 7 and the explorer can view these properties (Focal Length, F Stop, ISO, Shutter etc...) of JPEG's.

          ACDSee can do the same for the RAW files.

          This was using Firmware 2.1.
