Exiftool 11.94: now supports showing Mechanical (Normal) / Electronic Shutter
Posted By: acoufap, 04-17-2020, 12:14 PM

For Pentax DSLR users something new ...

exiftool now supports info about MS/ES usage. Here's the command ...

exiftool -ShutterType anImage.DNG


0 = Normal (MS, Mechanical Shutter), 1 = Electronic (ES, Electronic Shutter)

A more comprehensive command to get the basic shooting parameters of a image directory as csv file:

exiftool -G -FileName -ModifyDate -ShutterType -PixelShiftResolution -HDR -ISO -Fnumber -ExposureTime -ExposureCompensation -csv . > picDir-metadata.csv
