Commons EXIF extractor does not handle "flash"
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

You say
Flash 16
when the Debian exif pacakge says
Flash|Flash did not fire, compulsory flash mode.
for better or worse.
The Debian jhead pacakge says
Flash used : No
which I swear is the truth, as I like to have flash turned off.

Anyway, the commons EXIF extractor is wrong.

Flash is not handled by our EXIF implementation.
16d is 0x10 which mean "Flash did not fire, compulsory flash mode"
