HDR and bracket info in exif


New to Mu-43
Jul 6, 2014
Situation: new to Olympus E-M10, still figuring out the interaction among settings for HDR, brackets, and shot mode. It's easy to get a few dozen shots to review, and be unsure of what picture corresponds to what menu setting. Command line exiftool to the rescue. A sample, from an HDR / AE Bracket sequence:
exiftool -TAG "-ExposureMode" "-ExposureCompensation" "-DriveMode" "-MeteringMode"  P*.JPG
The output looks like:
======= P7080006.JPG
Exposure Mode                   : Auto
Exposure Compensation           : -3
Drive Mode                      : [5] Bracketing, Shot 2
Metering Mode                   : ESP


======== P7090008.JPG
Exposure Mode                   : Auto bracket
Exposure Compensation           : -1
Drive Mode                      : AE Bracketing, Shot 2
Metering Mode                   : Center-weighted average
Hope this helps somebody.
