This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Read and write video metadata into video or sidecar

Basic information like lens & camera are missing in Lightroom for video files. Specifically the D800 and S100 camera. The information is available in the files and can be seen using exiftool. It would be great to have this information available in Lightroom to search.

Further, the Video Frame Rate & Video Dimensions is picked up for the D800 but not the S100. It would also be great to be able to search of these two fields as well (in the Library Filter).

Did you find an answer to this problem? I've found LTR4 doing the same to my video files for S100 and 5Dmk2.

No answer. At some point in January 2012 Lightroom appears to have started picking up the Video Frame Rate and Video Dimensions. Still doesn't pick up the cameras (ie. D800 and S100) and there is no search functionality.

My work around is to use the Job Identifier in the IPTC Metadata (eg. "Nikon D800 Slow Motion"). This allows me to filter by camera and video type. I use the "Dimensions" under the "EXIF" category to help work out which videos are slow motion (nb. slow motion videos are generally lower resolution). Further I display the Megapixels in the Expand Cells Grid View. A little painstaking but it gets the job done.
