Unable to extract XMP/IPTC from D850 NEF file
« on: April 24, 2019, 08:21:11 AM »
ExfiTool version 11.22 seems able to extract all the file and camera information from the Nikon D850 NEF file, but does not seem able to extract any of the XMP/IPTC information.

...where DIR is the name of a directory/folder containing the images.  On Mac/Linux, use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") around arguments containing a dollar sign ($).

The nksc file contains the following fields in addition to the file and GPS information
MIMEType          XMPToolkit           About             Version           Appversion          Appname           XMLPackets        XMLPacketsType
Iptc             IptcType          NineEdits             Label       Rating      Trim

None of which return any information in a usable format.

Ah, OK.  Good.  You're looking at the NKSC file...

With the attached nksc.config file and the most recent version of ExifTool (11.38), you can use the following command to decode all of this:

exiftool -config nksc.config FILE
