i am using the following command to change the modelname of the camera

original name is ILCE-7RM5

exiftool.exe -model="ILCE-7RM4" DSC00009.ARW

Warning: [minor] Oversized SubIFD StripByteCounts (122419200 bytes, but expected 107116800) - DSC00009.ARW
    1 image files updated

the model name is not updated in the the raw file.

ExifTool says the file was updated, so I think this is FAQ 3.

...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 ($).


Thank you phil, it was not the modelid , it was the sonymodelid

exiftool.exe -sonymodelid="ILCE-7RM4" *.ARW

this one worked
