CS6 Bridge "Lens Specification Data" appears incorrect (W7 Pro 64Bit SP1)

Mar 22, 2012 9:34 AM

Viewing Camera Data (Exif) in CS6 Bridge

Noc ahgnges to default settings applied in CS6 Bridge


Observed Results:


The new "Lens Specification Data" under the Camera Data (Exif) appears to be be correctly reporting the lens type but shows the lens as "f/0" which is incorrect

This appears to be the case with pictures taken with two different lenes both of which are reported as f/0


Further up in the same tab the "Lens" data is correctly reported for the lens type and maximum aperture.


Expected Result:

Wasd to see the maximum aperture of the lens reproted in addition to the lens type, which I would ahve expected to be the same data as reproted under the "Lens" information higher up in the same panel.

Which begs the question what is the difference between the "Lens" information and the "Lens Specification Data" meant to be ?


Observed these results with the following two lenses:


EF-S17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM

EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM


System Info:

Won't let me paste in :(

    Hi Mseabroo,


    Could you please let us know your camera model and what file format you are using? .CR2, .JPG, or .DNG ? did you edit those images via other applications than ACR & Bridge? 

    It would be better if you can send us an image for our testing. (lbaichao at adobe dot com)

    Hi Mark,


    We found that Lens Specification is new to Exif 2.3 specification, so most Cameras might not support that well, I checked that it seems even 5D MarkIII does not write the complete LensSpecification info into its .CR2 files, so that's the reason why "F0" shows for LensSpecification in Bridge Metadata Panel. This is not a bug.


    For subject distance, we are still investigating the issue.


    Best Regards,
