Feature Request (FastRawViewer): More options for "Sort & Filter"

Hello all,
 
since FastRawViewer already reads the EXIF data of the loaded photos and already offers a few options for sorting and filtering, I would like to see more options:
Filter by:
ISO
Aperture
Shutter speed
Focal length
Exposure compensation
etc.
Basically, sort and filter according to the EXIF data that can be displayed in the left navigation area.
 
Many thanks in advance!
 
Best regards
Uli
 

Dear Sir:

Could you please explain how those features are relevant to culling?

Hello,
 
I'm happy to do it!
A typical day as a nature photographer looks like that, that I photograph most different things with very different camera settings and lenses. E.G.:

  • Flying birds with shutter speeds faster than 1/1000 sec, focal lengths larger than 200mm and my 100-500mm telephoto zoom.
  • Macro/close-up shots e.g. of plants or actual mushrooms, focal length fixed 100mm, 100mm macro lens
  • Long exposure of a brook, river or waterfall, aperture larger F8, exposure time longer than 1/10Sec. Focal length smaller 35mm, with my zoom lens 24-105mm
  • Focus stacking with 20-40 or more pictures in a series, mostly with the 100mm macro lens

 
Each of the described actions occurs several times in one day and in a sequence that cannot be planned in advance.
 
After one of these days, there are often 1000 or more photos.

  • With the filter functions I can cull e.g. first by filter all pictures taken with the 100-500mm lens with a shutter speed shorter than 1/1000 sec.
  • Then cull the other actions one after the other.

 

This way I already work in Lightroom with the disadvantage that I first have to import all 1000 photos in a tedious (and unnecessary) way.
 
On days when I'm only out with the 100-500mm, for example, I do the culling very efficiently in FastRawViewer, of course!

 
I hope I could explain you my thoughts sufficiently and I am looking forward to the next steps!
 
Many greetings
 
Uli

Hello,
 
I hope that the presentation of my workflow was sufficient to show you why I wrote this feature request. Would be happy if you could implement the requested customizations.
 
Thanks in advance!
