"35mm equiv." EXIF showing wrong.
I see this has been brought up before, but I would like to further the discussion in a new thread. Currently, a few users of my site have purchased new cameras, and within the EXIF displayed on the site, they have something like:
"Focal length: 72.0mm (35mm equivalent: 1814mm)"
Now, that's obviously wrong, but I can't figure out where it's coming from. I understand photopost isn't going to be creating this number, but the real problem stems from the fact that "1814" doesn't exist in the EXIF anywhere. Is it possible that jhead itself is getting confused about these numbers and making them up?
In relation, my own photos out of a DSLR actually have a field labeled "Focal Length in 35mm film", but it doesn't get displayed at all in the EXIF within photopost, but neither does this made up number.
Any ideas as to how I can solve this?
Alright, so I should have done this first. jhead reports the exact same incorrect info on the command line, so that's obviously where it's coming from. I've just installed the latest version available to me (2.4) and it reports the same thing. I'll head over to jhead for support, but are there any ideas here?
