    The old Enosoft Enhanced DV Decoder, when used for MiniDV transfers, used to show info such as the Iris, Gain & Shutter Speed used by my Panasonic GS-400 cameras. As these changed during a recording, due either to the Auto AE changing things, or manual intervention, the values shown in the DV decoder display were updated. I found being able to recall this info after recording useful.

    Now in the days of AVCHD & MP4 files, I can find no program that provides the same info, either just for the start of a clip, or variations throughout its duration. I'm using a Panasonic HC-V750. Sony Vegas Pro 12, MediaInfo and Panasonic HDWriter AE 5.1 don't report it.

    Is this exposure info still stored at either the header (i.e. only the settings in force at the start of a clip) or frame levels in these media formats?

    If so, what programs can report it?

    Is this supposed to be a reply to the previous post

    "Keeping video date when converting format"?

    No, it isn't. I'm not talking specifically about preserving this data in a format change. I'm talking about seeing it in the original ACHVD or MP4 files.

    I can get the date/time and some other info using the the programs mentioned. But not the exposure info.

    This may help depending on what metadata your camera actually includes. You can download a trial to test if you can get the data you want.
