Programmer most of the time and photographer most of the time. In a final analysis, I don't know what I'm more: programmer and photographer. Anyway, I do both for the others. This means that I'm a professional, no? Hummm...

comment How can I recover my camera's main setting or mode from the EXIF data?
@NormanRamsey: I'm afraid not. Because the exposure program is basically the same. Auto just makes other things 'automatic': auto-focus, flash, resolution - things like this. But the exposure program remains the same: Program (IOW the standard Av/Tv curve of the Program mode)

ExifTool is slow because the tool is a convoluted command line utility (at least for me is a nightmare to use it outside of XnView MP) and written in Perl. However, hat tip for Phil Harvey (ExifTool's author) for writing the best-on-earth EXIF digging engine.

comment How many keywords are possible in Lightroom without a performance penalty?
@EndreGrünerOfstad: Good question. :) Tried to answer here, I know what to write (there are some points to consider in order to know how to do it/what Lr settings to choose) but here the space simply doesn't help me. Also, IMHO it is a pity to get lost this question in comments. If isn't so hard for you ask a new question with the text above and I will gladly answer you :)

comment How many keywords are possible in Lightroom without a performance penalty?
Sure. In fact any number depends on the concrete hardware and the what means 'acceptable performance' for each user. That's why I tried to give some general guidance/rules to a general question. The actual answer only the one who asked can give.
