Why is everything in the Organizer converted to lowercase?

I would prefer to see metadata displayed exactly as it appears in the photo.  If this is done for searching purposes then I would suggest there be an option to ignore case in searches otherwise searches should be case sensitive.  This will give complete control of searches for the user.

Fully agree here, and is an issue I mentioned a while back too: http://forums.camerabits.com/index.php?topic=12205

Hi,

A remedy is currently in development.

- Metadata shown in Filter/Browse will retain its original unmodified case
- Searches initiated by clicking Filter/Browse items will be case-sensitive by default (What You See Is What You Get)
- The "QuickSearch" field will continue to be case-insensitive by default
- There will likely be a checkbox under QuickSearch to toggle case-sensitivity (and case-sensitivity can also be controlled at a fine-grained level using the query syntax, though the latter borrows from regular expression syntax and could be said to target 'advanced' users)
