EXIF: LensMake, LensModel and LensInfo

Post by Schwinni » Sun Mar 22, 2015 1:15 am

Hi all together,

is there a way to display information about the lens in XnViewMP?

The values exist in my files and are displayed by ExifTool, e.g.:
Exif:LensMake=FUJIFILM
Exif:LensModel=XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8 R LM OIS
Exif:LensInfo=55-200mm f/3.5-4.8

I have tried to use

Code: Select all

{EXIF:LensModel}
{EXIF:Lens Model}
{EXIF:xa434}
But all three notations are displayed literally.

What can I do to display the lens tags?

Best regards
Chris

P.S.: The tag ids are listed here: http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exi ... /EXIF.html

I attached an image which I resized with XnViewMP.
The metadata was preserved.

You will see that data about the lens is contained:
Lens Info: 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8
Lens Make: FUJIFILM
Lens Model: XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8 R LM OIS
Lens Serial Number: 47A03498

Best regards
Chris

Hi Pierre,

thanks for looking into this.
Be aware that the 4 above mentioned fields are standard tags from Exif Version 2.3: http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exi ... /EXIF.html
Of course FujiFilm also uses own tags, but these contain other information: http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exi ... iFilm.html

Best regards
Chris

I would also love to be able to add the LensModel tag to the info panel. I use several manual lenses that I have to manually add this information to and it can be very tedious to have to use a different application just to check if I remembered to add the lens info. Any plans to add this tag to info?

Thanks in advance!

An old thread, but apparently still the same situation.

I also desperately need access to the lens information, both for displaying it and, even more importantly, for searching/filtering for it. No complicated decoding of manufacturers' secret information needed, just access to the {EXIF: Lens Model} tag in all the places where there is already access to other EXIF tags. Seems like a minor change with major benefits to me ;-)

Best regards,
Bezier
