Can you fix lens and shutter speedEXIF on Penta User

The person who recently fixed EXIF so brilliantly would be doing everyone a big favour if he (she?) could fix the problems of 1) shutter speeds--they show now, but in really scary huge fractions; and 2) lens info doesn't show at all.

While the site people will have to fix the site, you can do a bit of self help with Firefox and a couple of add-ons.

Exify will show image details like this:

and FxIF like this:

Hope that helps for now. Perhaps obviously, I've got both installed!

Appreciate your information, but the lens and shutter info is in my image when it hits Pentax User. ( I use LR 6). ALL the EXIF info is retained in the images I post to PU. The problem is with the PU site because everyone without exception has the same two problems I cited in my post.

Yes indeed. If the exif wasn't present it wouldn't show in Exify or FXiF. Clearly us users can't fix the site but we can apply workarounds such as these to show it easily, in fact easier than the site's system even if that worked as intended (and on other sites too which don't have a method to show it at all.)

Well I see your point but I'd much rather ALL of our fellow members got their data to show up, and I refuse to believe PU can't fix the problem. John Riley, if he sees this, can hopefully see that it gets fixed, because I believe it was his intervention that sparked a fix re the lack of camera make and model (which now works for everyone.).

Some things are easy to fix and some prove to be intractable problems, or so time consuming that they keep getting "bumped" off the schedule!

I'll remind IT and see if they can have another look.
Best regards, John

Many thanks John. I have my fingers crossed.

While I'm here, I should amend a comment I made (above) about incorrect (or crazy) shutter speeds produced by Pentax User. A lot of them read like this:
50000/875000, but many of them are correct, say 1/40. I had implied ALL shutter speeds were Gonzo, which isn't a fact.

It's being looked into and as soon as I know anything I'll let you know.
Best regards, John
