Camera Raw/Lightroom: HDR exif metadata should come from middle-exposure bracket, not darkest

When I see EXIF data for HDR images that Lightroom created, it's based on the darkest exposure of the source images. I think the middle exposure (or next-to-middle if an even number of bracketed shots) is a more appropriate reflection of the shutter speed/exposure time.

Thanks Stephen, let me check with Josh, the engineer who does the merging code, and see if this is something we can change/fix.

On Nikon cameras you can set the order of bracketed from dark to light, but also from middle first then dark to light. This could already solve your concern from within the camera.

My Canon is set to shoot middle exposure first, so I think Lightroom picks its EXIF based on other criteria than capture order. Maybe I'll fool with that to see what happens though.
