How to show EXIF "Lens Type" in info overlay?

Post by Ihaveaproblem »

Hi!

I am unable to find the correct expression for displaying the name of the lens in the info overlay (I key). The files from my camera (Panasonic Lumix G-81) have an EXIF-Field, that is named "Lens Type" when viewed in the EXIF Side Panel and has a value of (for example) "LEICA DG MACRO-ELMARIT 45/F2.8". I was trying to find out the exact field name that must be used in the F12 settings for this information to display in the info overlay. I tried among several other variations (guessing):

Code: Select all

{Filename With Ext}
{EXIF:Date [d.m.Y H:M]}
f{EXIF:F-Number} {EXIF:Exposure Time}s i{EXIF:ISO Value} {EXIF:Focal Length 35mm}mm
{EXIF:Lens Type}
...but the expression in the last line is not evaluated.

Any help would be much appresciated.

Thanks!

And still no way to do it? That should not be that difficult, since this information is seen image info under "Makernotes"...
