Ingest camera metadata
Has anyone ever seen camera metadata in Premiere from non-raw footage?
Almost any camera today records metadata like model, serial no., ISO, white balance, etc. Premiere has had an extensive metadata system for over 5 years... and you'd think that developing codec support for any cameras that come out would include interpreting those metadata fields.
It's one of those "how come this hasn't been implemented 5 years ago?"...
I worked mostly with Sony and Canon cameras, so they're the ones I've seen without metadata.

Attached are some images of the metadata Premiere leaves behind. We would love to see supported.
I'm sure its similar for Canon but this is all the metadata Catalyst browse reads on Sony .mp4 files from just an a7s mkiii. This info is stored in a sidecar XML file next to the media as far as I can tell. It looks incredibly easy to read. I feel like an engineer could implement this in a week if they wanted to.
Things this could enable:
-search for footage by camera name
-apply a s-log3 lut to footage on ingest
The sony / canon file support has been weak outside of reading the file for playback. These cameras have been around since 2014 and earlier and have been incredibly popular.
This is an area for improvement.

**** are we still waiting for this comrades

Yes you are right, Its been a long time and no metadata support for several cameras formats, also the ability to apply luts by default to the footage on S-log or C-log, the way red footage works.
