[Update: LR 7.3.1 doesn't import a number a metadata fields from .CR3 files that are read from other raw formats, including the GPS fields, XMP:Rating, XMP:Title, EXIF:ImageDescription, EXIF:UserComment.  See below for more details.

Dear community,


I own a new Canon EOS M50 and took a lot of GPS tagged pictures in my last holiday. Lightroom is importing the CR3 files without any problems, but I miss the GPS position. If I look to the files with the tool of Canon I see, that the position where the picture was taken, is inside of the file. Even if I export the pic to a jpg and import it then to Lightroom I have the position - but I like to have the raw file.

So far I found no way to display the position in combination with the CR3 file. I could put it in manually for each file, but therefor these are to many.

I already double-checked the import parameters and no preset was applied, so I guess this is obviously still an issue of the cr3 implementation in the camera raw module.

Here a link to an example file:!AtdqMJFRUFadgrYafe8Xh8oe1NJ5fg 

Maybe somebody has an idea or workaround... At least it should be known and be fixed in a future release.

Thanks and regards
