Display camera focus point based on exif data

Some, if not all, DSLR and mirrorless cameras store focus point into image EXIF data. This data can be visualized using some 3rd party tools, but it would be highly useful to have this visualization cabability directly in Adobe Bridge. I personally use Sony Alpha camera which stores this data in JPEG and ARW files.

 

Please consider adding this feature in upcoming bridge releases.

Attached is an image of A7Info software which visualizes the focus point stored in image EXIF data.

Its proprietary information for each manufacturer. Adobe doesn't support that kind of data.

Isn't RAW image data produced by each camera model also a proprietary data by each vendor? Focus coordinates embedded in openly readable EXIF hardly feels more proprietary than sensor image data.

Arguing with me isn't going to help. I'm just telling you how it is.

I have wanted this feature ever since I began using LR Classic several years ago.  My old Apple Aperture had it and I found it useful.  For the $120/year I am paying, it is basically just a rental fee for a legacy piece of software, albeit a good one.  But where are the incremental improvements?  There don't seem to be many.  There is an opportunity for a competitor here.
