How to identify 1st image of a bracketed group?

Postby David_PPP » Sun Jan 20, 2019 9:01 pm

I shoot a lot of real estate images using HDR. I'd like to be able to filter the images so that I can let the realtor see the first image of the bracketed set rather than have to go through all 5. According to http://owl.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/TagNames/Canon.html#MultiExp, the data exists, but I can't find a way to set up to use the field called AutoExposureBracketing. If I can select images only if AutoExposureBracketing = 1 or 0 then it should give me what I need.
Does anybody know how to do this?
Please let me know.
Thanks
David

Sorry, but you can only filter the filmstrip based on rating, labels, and (local to ShutterSnitch) tags.

I’m curious: can you give me an example of the 5 file names you end up with when taking a bracketed shot?

If they reveal their sequence, I have a workaround for you.

Thank you very much for the follow up!
The filenames are all sequential. I've attached a screen shot. Is there any hidden way to access metadata fields within ShutterSnitch?

Dang. I'd hoped the filename would show what number of the bracketed shot it was.

I'll look into digging out the auto exposure metadata and post back when I know more.

Thank you so much. Do you need the metadata fields?

I don’t understand the question..?

And just to be sure I won’t be wasting days working on something you can’t use: if I were to figure out how to get to AEB data, you’ll still need to be transferring all the photos to ShutterSnitch and *then* filter those down. You won’t be able to have ShutterSnitch just receive the photo with some specific metadata.
Would this be a dealbreaker for you?

I really appreciate your responsiveness and support. It won't be a waste of time and it'll be very much appreciated.

I can see the relevant data in Lightroom using Jeffrey Friedel's metadata plugin. http://regex.info/blog/lightroom-goodies/metadata-viewer

Would you like me to send some sample files (jpg taken with Canon) and screenshots of the metadata? If so, where shall I send them?

Sure, I wonder if I’m doing something wrong with my AEB captures, because the main AEB metadata field is consistently 0 here, but the AEB bracketing metadata values do show -1/0/+1. Weird. It would be nice to have a batch of sample files from you for verification. You can attach the files in posts here.

Update: Video attached of how this can be accomplished in the next version (4.4.6 :). Feel free to still upload those sample files, so I can verify it'll also work on them.
