Request for photos: Olympus image stabilisation metadata – #8 by sallyanne – darktable

At the moment, I am updating the Exif.OlympusCs.ImageStabilization tag in Exiv2 and would like to know how to interpret the metadata values. I can look up the image stabilization labels in the Olympus instruction manuals but I do not know how these relate to the values stored in the metadata.

I am looking for photos taken with the different image stabilization settings for several Olympus camera models. Ideally, one photo for each of the possible setting in your camera but whatever you can provide will help. For each photo, I need to know the camera model and which image stabilization setting was used. I can then examine the photo to find out which value is stored in the metadata. The quality of the picture is unimportant, so photos of the floor/ceiling are equally as helpful. I am only interested in the metadata.

The Exiv2 library provides the metadata processing for many open-source projects such as darktable and GIMP. Once a file is opened, Exiv2 provides the original (‘vanilla’) value stored in the metadata but also tries to provide a human-readable interpretation (the ‘translated’ value). Currently, the Exif.OlympusCs.ImageStabilization tag only outputs translated values of Off, On, Mode 1, On, Mode 2 and On, Mode 3. However these labels are generic and do not relate to the options displayed on the camera. My aim is to provide clearer labels such as S-IS1 and S-IS AUTO.

Once I have samples from several different camera models, I can complete the changes in Exiv2.

Thanks for the help.
