1  Products And Services / ExifMeta Lightroom Plugin / Re: Strange values EXIF metadata with Nikon D810 (picture control 2.0) on: September 10, 2014, 04:53:33 pm
I always like to shoot in JPG+RAW and try to get the picture well out of the camera. This way I am spending less time on the computer and have more time available to make great pictures. But for this to work I need to know what I have been doing with the picture control. Very strange Nikon messed this up. To be honest I don't think I will be able to solve this, but will ask Nikon for info.... Who knows they will share.

If not and in the meantime I will switch to shooting RAW only most probably.

Thank you for looking into my question / issue!
Very strange Nikon put this kind of information into numbers instead of real exit data which is much more user friendly as they did with previous camera's. Their own software do understand this way of working, but it will be quiet difficult to get all combinations of values of picture control settings translated to understandable information.... But to me this is really important or I have to switch to using RAW instead of JPG. This really is a deal breaker for me because now I am looking into the dark considering settings made within the camera.

Have to find out how Nikon is using the numbers. I will write Nikon support an email, but doubt if they will give more insight. Do you have any ideas left about what to do next?

Thank you so far and will keep you posted about the response of Nikon.

If I am correct you can download the file with the URL below.

Please let me know if you have been able to do so. I will remove the file when done.

Hmm - ExifMeta is not a smart plugin. What I mean, is *all* data is handled generically (it has no model-type smarts..).

So if you're getting funny metadata values, I'm guessing those funny metadata values are just what's in the file..

That said, in a fairly recent version I did add custom metadata decoding, and so that could be used for special model-specific handling, e.g. to support funny D810 values.

Either that or I'm wrong, and there's a bug in ExifMeta, but step 1 is to check what's really in the 810 file using exiftool, if you know how. If you don't know how then send me a sample file and I'll check it out.

Hi Rob,
Thank you for the prompt reply. I will sent you a file with some explanation about which changes made to the picture controles, so you can check it yourself. I hope it is a bug or something else you can change because at this moment I really can't make any clue about which values are changed. So looking into the dark unfortunately.

Do you have a preferred way of me sending you the file?

One other thing I just noticed is the auto update function with the 5.7 version is taking around 2% cpu time constantly and my laptop isn't going into sleep mode fully anymore. I noticed because my laptop was very warm this morning when I removed it from the charger, normally it is cold. When I disable the auto update function it is solved and cpu usage is back to zero. Not sure if the update caused the sleep mode issue, but it is constantly taking cpu time. Meaby you could look into this also?

Regards,
Olaf.

Hi,
I have replaced my Nikon D800 with a D810 a little while ago.
For the D800 I was using this tool together with metadata-presets-jfriedl.lrplugin to display several values like white balance and the picture control settings like picture controle name, sharpness, contrast, brightness, saturation and hue. With the D800 this was working perfect. I was able to read the (jpg) corrections I made in the camera with the picture control settings. Values I got looked like: normal, -1 or +1 depending on the correction I made. It was working perfectly!

With the D810 this isn't working anymore. I am getting really strange values like -124 for brightness and hue. Even more strange when I change sharpness on the camera the exif data of contrast is changed when I use this tool. The D810 is the first camera which uses picture control 2.0 (with addition of an extra slider for Clarity). Does it mean this tool isn't compliant with the D810 yet? Any idea how I can solve this issue or when this tool will be compliant with the D810 / picture control 2.0?

If I can help you with testing or something else to make this work, please let me know!

Kind regards,
Olaf.
