Does the {mode} variable give you what you want?

Hi,
 I don't see it.
I see Color mode, Focus mode, & Program mode.
{mode} returns program mode (shutter priority ect)
Thanks

What information is it that you are looking for then?  Maybe you could give me a textual example of what would be output if a new variable were created that displayed the "Metering Mode"...

Once I have an idea of what you're looking for, I can see about whether the data is contained in EXIF or in the camera manufacturer's Maker Notes.

Thanks,

Apologize for being vague.
Canon Bodies.
Spot, Evaluative, Partial, Pattern, Centerweighted Averaged, and AF Point Spot Linked Metering.

"Metering Mode" can be found in any exif viewer. It can be found in Faststone. It can be found in IView. It can be found in Photoshop's file info. It can be found in Windows Explorer file properties.

Oh yeah, well it can't be found in Photo Mechanic, so there!  ;)

We just added a Metering Mode variable: {mmode}
You'll see it in the next update.
