DNG Tags

The main DNG tags are found in the EXIF table. The tables below define only information found within structures of these main DNG tag values. See http://www.adobe.com/products/dng/ for the official DNG specification.

DNG AdobeData Tags

This information is found in the "Adobe" DNGPrivateData.

The maker notes ('MakN') are processed by ExifTool, but some information may have been lost by the Adobe DNG Converter. This is because the Adobe DNG Converter (as of version 6.3) doesn't properly handle information referenced from inside the maker notes that lies outside the original maker notes block. This information is lost when only the maker note block is copied to the DNG image. While this doesn't effect all makes of cameras, it is a problem for some major brands such as Olympus and Sony.

Other entries in this table represent proprietary information that is extracted from the original RAW image and restructured to a different (but still proprietary) Adobe format.
