OK, updated version that allows you to specify the pattern that it uses to search for jpeg files. So say you had roll 0003 containing frames 1 to 24, to make frame 16 match scan000316.jpg you would do this:

./dm9toexif.pl scan@R@F DNO-0003.txt

and it will fill that pattern in by substituting roll-number for @R and frame number for @F and then use it to look for a jpeg file in the same directory of that name.

Finally got good look at the file.

"Bad Shutter Value ' 0"5'"

I've looked at creating custom tags, but am really lost.

Can you send me the offending DNO-file?

I believe it was the one I already sent you.

DNO-0001.txt

I will resent it by email later today.

Could it be because of the leading space?

In your latest version, which tags are still outstanding?

Can you add tags to your program for Make="Minolta", Model="Maxxum 9", and FileSource="Film Scanner"

What other tags are we currently missing that need a custom tag created?

OK, I've fixed it with respect to x"y forms of shutter time and added the FileSource, Make and Model tags.

There are many tags currently not being set, or being set poorly, e.g. Flash settings: EXIF defines a very restricted set of options and the DM-9 values basically condense to "on" and "off" when translated to EXIF because there's no concept of rear curtain sync or the like documented in exiftool.

Where exif lacks, I propose we utilize user defined tags with the same functionality as the makernotes tags used by the digital bodies a la http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/TagNames/Minolta.html

I just need a list of exactly which tags we need/want to ask for Phil's help in creating those custom tags.

Can we also add as an input from the user when calling the program the type of film used (Reala, Gold, etc), and then insert that as a custom tag as well?

I've discovered a minor bug at present. If you use @f instead of @F the program does not like it.

Yep. Must be @F. Likewise uppercase for the other one as well, though I can't say I reckon that's a bug - options are generally case-sensitive for most programs but for this it needn't be.

Haven't had time to look at it recently at all - too much work and all spare time has been photography :)

Take this as a good sign for software engineering: found a bug with dm9toexif, and took 20 months since the last one!

For now, ensure any image files have a lowercase filename suffix .jpg, not .JPG.

By the way, are any other dyxumites using this program? (I guess it would only apply to those using a 9 with the DM-9).

Not yet, but I intend to give it a try or at least the one Vitor passed on to me -- assume its the same? This is 9 specific? Not for the 7?

I wrote my own code in Matlab. I only tried it with DS-100. I just got DM-9 for one of my Maxxum 9, but I am still using the first roll with it.
What I worte is not the most elegant code, but it works. The only problem I have is that it doesn't agree to change the Make to Minolta. I am using Nikon scanner and it gives me error message for the -Make="Minolta". As a results my photos are tagged as Nikon Maxxum 9...

Maybe I should try your codes...

OK, jpg/JPG issue should be fixed in the current version. Don't forget to rename the download to .pl of course.

Oops
