Description

There is currently no support for parsing Pentax maker note. Following links show some information I was able to collect.

Additional information:

I'm willing to help with implementing this, but I seem to be lost in the code so far. If somebody can help me or even better provide some template to fill in, it would be great.

I just also found that ExifTool has support for this, so it can be used for inspiration:

#2 Updated by Michal Čihař over 9 years ago

Attached patch that decodes most of things ExifTool supports as well as some my own investigation based on K10D camera.

The only thing missed compared to ExifTool is parsing of some more complex fields where I gave it up for now :-).
