Metadata Features

These new features are stored in your camera’s metadata, this metadata is helpful for detemining what features are used per clip. The metadata, and the features it enables, can be extracted with this page.

All metadata QR commands are written in the form oMwxzy=value(s) or !Mwxzy=value(s) – where the four character code (4CC) wxzy is under your control, along with the data it stores. The !M version will permanently store the metadata, and the oM will store it for only this power-on session. Metadata is available to flag your files for special uses, or just to label the camera owner. Some particular 4CCs will also change camera behavior and/or enable features. Here is a list of additional metadata driven controls:
