Based on the information available at [1] and based on the output of the images of my Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6, I wrote a patch for exiv2 updating the tags that I know of.
The second patch gets rid of a few duplicate entries which I'm not sure why they would be necessary, I can't see it.

Note that I broke compatibility with a few older cameras, since Panasonic doesn't seem to care too much about backwards compatibility (i.e. contrast mode entry), but I thought it would be better to stick to current models rather than antique ones.

Thanks for sending the patches. I'm going to assign this issue to Niels because he's our maker notes engineer.

This is a duplicate of ticket #929

Also accelerometer settings and derived angles (pitch, roll) are only displayed as raw values and not the correctly converted values.

Yes, I noticed that the output isn't in degrees, but I wasn't sure how to handle it.

I'll take a look at the other patch and test it. If I have any comments, I'll post them in the other bug report. You can close this as a duplicate.
