I have just discovered that ImageEnView1.IO.Params.EXIF_MeteringMode does not have a code for the new "Highlight Weighted" metering mode that Panasonic G9 introduced with the 11/19/2019 firmware update. It reports 255:Other which for the time being I'm using to report this metering mode. I'm hoping that in due course you can update ImageEn using the sample photo I've attached.

Hi JR

The value inside the photo is 255. That is what the camera sets it to.

Thanks for checking. I'm surprised since I would expect various cameras to have different codes for new features. I'm guessing that the latest EXIF specification only allows 255.

Hi JR

It's an integer field, so the camera can set it to whatever it likes, but as you say, to adhere to the EXIF specification they have used an existing value.
