Minolta Tags

These tags are used by Minolta, Konica/Minolta as well as some Sony cameras. Minolta doesn't make things easy for decoders because the meaning of some tags and the location where some information is stored is different for different camera models. (Take MinoltaQuality for example, which may be located in 5 different places.)

Minolta LensType Values

Decimal values have been added to differentiate lenses which would otherwise have the same LensType, and are used by the Composite LensID tag when attempting to identify the specific lens model. "New" or "II" appear in brackets if the original version of the lens has the same LensType. Special logic is employed to identify the attached lens when a Metabones Canon EF adapter is used.

Minolta CameraSettings Tags

There is some variability in CameraSettings information between different models (and sometimes even between different firmware versions), so this information may not be as reliable as it should be. Because of this, tags in the following tables are set to lower priority to prevent them from superceding the values of same-named tags in other locations when duplicate tags are disabled.
