Software Update: ExifTool 12.48

Spread the love

Phil Harvey has released version 12.48 of ExifTool. ExifTool is a free and cross-platform program that allows the metadata of a large number of files can be managed and edited. It works from the command line, but third-party solutions are available that allow it to be used with a graphical user interface as well. New versions appear regularly, but most releases are made available under the beta flag. This update is also referred to as a development version; the latest stable release is version 12.46. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:

Changes in version 12.48:

  • Added support for new XMP-photoshop:CameraProfiles structure
  • Added a new SonyModelID and Sony LensType (thanks Jos Roost)
  • Decode more tags for the Sony ILME-FX30 (thanks Jos Roost)
  • Decode a couple of new Panasonic tags, and improved decoding of others
  • The code STANAG-4609 MISB timed metadata from M2TS videos
  • Decode a new Nikon tag (thanks Warren Hatch)
  • Decode a couple of new FujiFilm tags (thanks Honza Pokorny)
  • Improved round-off errors when writing QuickTime:MatrixStructure via the Composite:Rotation tag
  • Increased Verbose level of “nothing changed” message added in 12.45
  • Removed “Z” (Zulu) designation from some of the MS-DOC date/time tags because they most certainly are in local time as written by Word 2011 for Mac (while some other MS-DOC and FlashPix date/time tags extracted without a “Z” are actually in Zulu time — a bit of a mess really)
  • Prevent dynamically-generated Unknown tags from being extracted when the -validate option is used without -u
  • Patched to better handle irregular timestamps in streaming GPS or NextBase dashcam videos
  • Fixed incompatibility with Sigma Photo Pro which could result in Sigma Photo Pro corrupting an ExifTool-edited X3F image (the section length in the footer needed to include the padding to a 4-byte boundary, thanks Sigma engineer Yuki Miyahara)
  • Fixed problem which could prevent ExifTool from reading all GPS points from some INNOV M2TS videos

Changes in version 12.47:

  • Added a new Nikon LensID (thanks David Püschel)
  • Fixed bug introduced in 12.46 which resulted in a runtime error when -j was combined with -b
