when not using digital, but manual prime lenses via an adapter (lets say hasselblad lens on a canon 5dmkii)
the lens will always be mentioned in the exif as a 50mm lens (somehow) although it is a 80mm for example
i can program some adapters so they mention the right f and mm in the exif but the programming is very unhandy

solution- enhancement request
make it easy to make (or import a list from a longer list of all lenses, so you do not have to type in all the data)
thus easy to show and choose the short list of lenses that will be used for the specific camera in magic lantarn
hasselblad 40mm, f4
hasselblad 50mm f4
hasselblad 80mm f2.8

the only thing then to do before the recording is to choose the lens that is attached to it
let magic lantarn write to exif and other lens specific data
so that data in the edit that could be visible , if only in the name of the file

I'd like to get back to that project but it is currently broken.
