Up until some time between July 2010 and September 2010, the focusing points embedded in the original Canon CR2 files were also converted and containded in the DNG-file. Hence up until this point in time the focusing points were shown in Apple's Aperture. Since September 2010 this is no longer the case.
I had hoped for the DNG Converter 6.7 Beta to have corrected this truncation of the files.
I am using af Canon EOS 1D Mark III. I am running OS X Lion 10.7.3
1. Has anybody else experienced the same change in behavor of the DNG Converter?
2. Can anybody still see the focus points in Aperture or equal Imaging program?
3. Does anybody have an idea, how to contact Adobe for such a feature request?
Thank you in advance for your help.
The focus point info is contained in private Canon MakerNote metadata which is preserved when converting to DNG, even with current DNG Converter versions.
Thank you for your answer. So what you are saying is that for some reason Apple's Aperture is no longer reading these MarkerNote metadata correctly?
I don't really know how Apple's software deals with the MakerNote data, but I can confirm that the MakerNote is contained in the DNGs produced by DNG Converter.
