Possible 60D Bug
« on: October 24, 2010, 08:58:03 PM »
I shot a few test images with my new 60D and used ExifTool to extract the metadata.  I get the warning:  "Invalid AmbienceInfo data" on the second line of the output file.  I have tried changing the Picture Style from Neutral to Faithful to Standard, but I always get the warning.  Unfortunately my 60D is now in the birthday present vault for a couple of weeks, so I can't run further tests.

My OS is Windows XP SP3.

ExifTool version is 8.35.

The command line is:  "c:\Program Files\Exiftool\Exiftool" -k -a -s -u -f -G0:1 -m *.cr2 >Tags.txt

Console output is: 
F:\!Pictures\9 Canon_EOS60D\!ExifToolTest>"c:\Program Files\Exiftool\Exiftool" -
k -a -s -u -f -G0:1 -m *.cr2  1>Tags.txt
-- press any key --

The first few lines of the output file are:
[ExifTool]      ExifToolVersion                 : 8.35
[ExifTool]      Warning                         : Invalid AmbienceInfo data
[File:System]   FileName                        : _MG_0023.CR2
[File:System]   Directory                       : .
[File:System]   FileSize                        : 26 MB
[File:System]   FileModifyDate                  : 2010:10:23 15:25:38-07:00
[File:System]   FilePermissions                 : rw-rw-rw-
[File]          FileType                        : CR2
[File]          MIMEType                        : image/x-canon-cr2
[File]          ExifByteOrder                   : Little-endian (Intel, II)
[EXIF:IFD0]     ImageWidth                      : 5184
[EXIF:IFD0]     ImageHeight                     : 3456

I am attaching the entire output file.  Unfortunately, the only picture files that I have are CR2 and are too big to attach.

Thanks for this report.  My 60D samples don't contain AmbienceInfo.  If you could mail a CR2 sample to me (philharvey66 at gmail.com), I will sort this out.  Big files aren't a problem for my mail.

Edit:  If the CR2 is to big for you to send, then the output of the -v3 option should be sufficient for me to see what is happening.

...where DIR is the name of a directory/folder containing the images.  On Mac/Linux, use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") around arguments containing a dollar sign ($).

Hi Phil,

I tried sending the 26Mb CR2 file but my ISP choked (3 times).

So I ran my batch file with the -v3 option: 
"c:\Program Files\Exiftool\Exiftool" -k -a -s -u -f -G0:1 -m -v3 *.cr2 >Tags.txt

The relevant info is:
  | | | 40) AmbienceInfo (SubDirectory) -->
  | | |     - Tag 0x4020 (20 bytes, int32u[5]):
  | | |         b450: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 [................]
  | | |         b460: 00 00 00 00                                     [....]
  | | | Warning = Invalid AmbienceInfo data


I am attaching the entire output file.

Thanks!

Hi Louie,

Thanks.  I should be able to fix the problem with this information.
