How to show Lens Name and Exposure Mode in Info Overlay

Post by Ihaveaproblem »

Hi!

Currently my Info Overlay is this:

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
How do I add the Lens Name and and Exposure Mode (eg. "A", "S", "P", "M", etc.) in the Info Overlay? I have tried different placeholders, but none worked.

I have attached a photo file from my Camera to help identifying the fields:

Settings / browser / thumbail but ir looks like you have already found that. There are a ton of things under camera when you add a custom field so a bit of trial and error to get what you want (?)
Perhaps someone will have a different way of doing this
PS Nice Picture!

Yes, I know there is a ton of info in the file metadata. In the Exif-Panel of XnVieMP and using other EXIF-Viewer-Tools, I can clearly see that the name of the Lens is stored (see screenshots). I have tried extracting that name before asking for help here on the forum. Look at what I have tried:

Why does

Code: Select all

{Panasonic:LensType}
{LensType}
just not work?

Why is XnViewMP unable to display this simple information in the Info Overlay? Please help and/or implement.

Merci! 8)
