This week-nd I have taken 2 compact camera with the Face mode detection activated
Canon G11 (2 years old) and Casio Exilin EX-H20G (the one that comes with GPS) its a this year camera.
When I am taking pictures I see the Boxes around the faces, moving and following the faces.
So all is as expected
a) The Canon camera comes with the Face information on The exif.
exiftool.exe -r -AFAreaMode "&DIR" > resultado.csv
I get this on the images that have faces...
AF Area Mode : Face Detect AF
which is near perfect.
But there is one image that has Faces but is not detected with this tag
But looking at the AF Point shows this.
AF Point : Face Detect
How can I get this AF Point ? .... or to make the question more general, if using Exiftool I get
a tag, on the list How can get the - value to put on the equation
-AFPoint doe not work.
b) On the Casio Images I have tried the previos system and this one
'exiftool.exe -r -FacesDetected "&DIR" > resultado.csv
Unfourtunatelly the result is Nill.
I have looked at the exif of the images that I know have faces and there is nothing that would indicate that
data regarding faces has been addedto the exifdata.
Comparing this exif with one of a image without faces seemsequal..
So I do not know if this data is placed some other place or Casio only uses the face boxes to
focus the image but does not add the exif data.
I could send you a few files if yo want.
