Title: which lens used
Post by: Gordon McGeachie on February 27, 2017, 05:27:44 PM
can anyone please tell me how I can get flickr to show what lens has been used on the pictures uploaded ?

I have seen it displayed on a few of my contacts images, but not sure how to show mine.

thanks guys

Gordon

What program do you use to create the images you upload on to Flickr?
As know in Lightroom when exporting images there is an option to remove the exif data.  If that is selected images I upload do not show any lens data.

I use paintshop pro x2 as my image editor, and have the exif data saved, I get everything else except the lens used.

Hi Gordon

If you go to the 'settings' page in your Flickr account and then go to 'Privacy & Permissions' then go to the 6th option in the list - Hide your EXIF data [?] you will be able to change the setting to show all the info.

I don't think it will show 'which' lens was used - only the focal length used.

I've just checked on a few of mine, and it appears to depend on the lens (and possibly camera) used.

So one taken on my A900 with the Tamron 150-600 shows 'Sony DSLR-A900' then '150-600 F5.0-6.3 SSM'
while one from my A6000 shows 'Sony ICLE-A6000' then 'E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 OSS'

'Lens Model' appears to be an entry in the EXIF, and matches the description given at the top, so I woudl guess it is using that.
