[DUPLICATE] Custom exif data
« on: August 01, 2018, 05:45:36 PM »
Many people use old manual lenses adapted to their cameras. The problem I have is that when using old manual lenses the camera gets no data from the lenses and thus cannot write the focal length/aperture used to the exif data. I think it would be very useful to have a feature which would allow you to write this information to the via magic lantern.

One way this could work is that you create different profiles for different lenses in the magic lantern menu, There you could add the name and the focal length of the lens. Now you could easily switch between these profiles, while you switch between lenses, and keep track of the lens you were using. Now the only thing you would have to enter manually is the aperture.

what do you think?

Sorry for bad english :D
