Hello,
I appeared to have showed up to the party a few years too late. Is anyone still using the DS-100 and script? Thank you.

Has anyone implemented this on a Mac yet? (I have OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan.)

There is a version of Perl supplied with OS X and I have got as far as installing the OS X exiftool package and successfully running it in a Terminal window.

Things break down when I try to run dn7toexif.pl and not being a coder I may be making some fundamental error.

Rather than debug what I'm doing, I thought I'd start with the general query about running the script on a Mac.

Thanks!

I use Meta35 for this. It also works with my Canon and Nikons.

I'm sure it's good, but this is very expensive for the limited use I have for the software. The Windows/Perl installation worked OK for me, but I am now looking to see if I can get this script to work on the Mac.

Hello Everyone,

Got a Minolta Alpha 7 and DS-100 a few months and was looking to use this process to update the metadata from the camera to the scanned images. The link to the dn7toexif script is not currently working for me and I was wondering if anyone still had a copy and could possibly help me out.

Thanks!

I'm afraid I've moved away from Windows and don't have access to the original files anymore. Have you tried a DM to Vitor, the person who posted the link?

Many thanks, Vitor - much appreciated.

To anyone else reading this - has there been any success implementing this code in the Mac OSX environment? Or is it beet to look at setting up the tools in a Windows emulation package?

These are Perl scripts and since my quick look at the code reveals no Windows specific functions being used, you should be able to use these also on MacOS X (in Terminal) as is. If I have understood correctly, MacOS X even comes with perl interpreter as default. You may only need to install Exiftool modules if those are not yet installed.

Thanks very much, Hezu. I did ask about this a while ago (see above) and I ran into some problem then running the .pl script. I'll take a look again and see if I can figure out where it goes wrong and why, but I'm not a coder ...

I am pretty late to this thread. I have a Maxum 7 and Maxum 9, and I am trying to figure whether, using pearl and the script, I can just have everything go to a XMP file, instead of directly in the file. I have everything setup and the scripts work flawlessly on jpgs.

I have tried researching this, but when I scan HDR in Silverfast and then run the script on DNG files, the files are no longer editable in Silverfast. So, I am thinking a side car file would be my best bet to preserve the integrity of the file.

Any help, or can you point me in the right direction?

What script are you using? Doesn't the script generates the sidecar already?

If using the above scripts search for the following lines:
      # write the EXIF to a new jpeg and to an XMP file
      $exifTool->WriteInfo($fname, $outfile);
      $exifTool->WriteInfo(undef, $xmpfile, 'XMP');

The second line is the one that generates the XMP (sidecar) file from scratch.

There might be something proprietary that Silverfast is storing in the DNG that isn't kept by exiftool.
