Package: ristretto
Version: 0.8.2-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,


At the bottom is the metadata reported by jhead on some jpegs.

When viewing image properties with ristretto, the following important
attributes do NOT appear:
- Aperture
- Whitebalance

Eog reports Aperture value under Image Properties -> Metadata and
whitebalance under Image Properties -> Details.

Please consider adding at least Aperture and Whitebalance to the image
properties displayed by ristretto. These are very useful when looking at
a group of test pictures to evaluate lens performance and camera

Also, both eog and ristretto list "Exposure Program" = "Normal program" but the
result from jhead "program (auto)" is more accurate and maps directly to camera settings.
