Summary0001008: Geosetter hangs when reading ARW files from Sony DSC-RX!
DescriptionThank you for your outstanding tool! I'm using geosetter 3.4.16 Build 2119, which uses exiftool 9.09 to read and write image metadata. Geosetter hangs when I open a directory full of ARW image files from the new Sony DSC-RX1. When I try kill geosetter, windows reports an error that "Managing metadata (EXIF/IPTC/XMP) of image files is not responding". If I don't kill geosetter, eventually it loads the directory but it takes a very long time (eg., 30 seconds for a directory with only 2 24MB ARW files, 4 minutes for a directory with 13 24MB ARW files, and an unknown amount of time for a directory with 80 ARW files). When I open a directory full of similarly-sized NEF files, Geosetter loads the directory much more quickly (eg., 49 seconds for 35 21MB NEF files). This is on a Windows 7 64-bit machine with 8GB of RAM.
Additional InformationAt first I thought it was an issue with exiftool, but Phil thinks not.,4668.0.html

The slow handling makes Geosetter practically unusable for Sony ARW files.
