On the Import panel in the "Metadata Presets" section there is a drop-down selection field for Metadata. Which one is selected when you lose the EXIF information?
On the Info panel there is a drop-down selection field to choose the set of info you want to display (General, File Info, IPTC Core, etc.). Which one is selected when you don't see the EXIF data?
Sorry, we are going to have to get more specific.
1. Are you specifically talking about EXIF (data generated by your camera) or IPTC (data generated by you)?
2. What are some examples of the information that seems to be missing, e.g., field names and values?
3. In Finder, how are you viewing the information that is missing in Aperture?
4. What camera make & model are you using? Are you shooting RAW or JPEG?
5. What version of Aperture are you using?
6. Has this problem always been there, or it just start after an update or something?
I am talking EXIF (data generated by my camera)
Some miising info, Camera make, Model, Lens, ISO, Focal Lentgh, Aperture, Speed, White Balance. etc etc
I veiw the miising info in Bridge CS6 its all there.
Camera Make model....Canon EOS 1DX
Aperture version 3.4.5
The problem has been happening aloong time , but I see on some images I took in 2012/11 on my Nikon D700 the Exif is there.
I have had some images off the CANON EOS 1DX so its not the camera.
Thanks. Might be a RAW support issue. Couple of things to check...
At the top of the INFO panel your camera model should appear...does it? Or does it show "unsupported".
In the "About Aperture" dialog, what version of Digital Camera RAW is listed? The Canon 1DX was added to DCR version 3.1.3. That version also requires OS X 10.6.8 or OS X Lion 10.7. Your profile says 10.6.4 ... is that what you are really running? Aperture 3.4.5 requires OS X Lion 10.7.5 or OS X 10.8.2 or later so you must be running something different.
If all of the above is in order, you might try trashing the Aperture preferences. Doubt that will help, but you never know.
