save exif parameters to file..

I'd like to export focal length, shutterspeed to a single file (for excel), drawing from all the files in a single directory. I'm following the instructions, but clearly not well enough. I know nothing about command line syntax.

Thanks!

Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\Gino\Desktop\EXIF tool>exiftool -s -s -ApertureValue -
ExposureTime -FocalLength -Lens -ISO -r "C:\Documents and Settings\Gino\My Docum
ents\My Pictures\baby shower" > "\rawdata.txt"

gives me:
Can't use string ("25") as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at C:\Documents
 and Settings\Gino\Desktop\EXIF tool/lib/Image/ExifTool.pm line 1861, <EXIFTOOL_
FILE> chunk 2.

Your command looks good to me.  ExifTool should not give an error like this, so I will have to track this down.  What version are you using?  Try the command with a single image in the current directory. I'm thinking there may be something odd about the names of the files in the directory. Anything you can do to narrow this down will help. Maybe try forward slashes instead of backslashes. I will look into this after I get back from vacation in a week. - Phil

Any further thoughts here? I'd be very appreciative for any suggestions...
Thanks!

Thanks for reminding me of this.

What version of ExifTool are you using.  In the current version, ExifTool.pm
line 1861 does not contain a HASH reference.

In the directory: C:\Documents and Settings\Gino\Desktop\EXIF tool\Image-ExifTool-7.25
Code:
exiftool -ver
6.30

I downloaded exiftool the day before the original post, so I figure I'm current?

Not sure about 7.25 vs. 6.30

Thanks!

Ah.  There's your problem. You have an old copy of exiftool installed, and that is the library that is being used. You need to delete the old version. - Phil
