Re: Metadata use

EXIF data is only part of the 'metadata' that files contain. As the complexity of cameras has evolved so has the need to include more information about the camera (and lens) settings and variables, including scene modes, art modes, distortion correction data, and so on. Most of this is proprietary and not visible when using EXIF or other standard metadata viewers/editors.
