That’s great news. Thanks @Anders. If the speed improvement is as good as you say then yeah, it’ll be great to have the EXIF written directly onto the images as they’re captured rather than doing it as a separate step.
Even if you decide not to add this feature back, there’s another thing I want to mention about adding EXIF info. When I was in vacation last month, I couldn’t transfer my images to the laptop for a couple of days as I forgot to get a main adapter from UK to European standard and the hotel didn’t have one to lend me. So after each trip (of capturing a couple of thousand images) I’d run Add Exif. After several trips, the images captured quickly piled up to over 10,000 but each time I ran Add Exif, it would start counting from 1, so it was taking longer and longer, even though 8000 of them have already been tagged with lat/lon info.
I’m not sure how common this is with users, where you just pile up the images captured prior to uploading right away, for whatever reason.
My question is, is the algorithm for adding EXIF simply looks at each image and tag every single picture regardless of where it’s already been geotagged or does it skip the ones that’s already been tagged?
I was expecting the process to do the latter and only tags those that are not. So,as per last example, if you have 10,000 images and 8000 of them having already geotagged, rather than starting 1 of 10000, it would say tagging 1 of 2000 and only tag the ones which need to be tagged.
