P: Allow searching by "Exposure Bias" in the Lightroom Classic Metadata Library Filter

Exposure Bias is not currently a searchable field, pleaseinclude it in the Metadata Library Filters. Multiple reasons why this is useful, from photographers who use bracketing, and want to sort through images at 0ev, using fixed exposure compensation on shoots and wanting to select and increase exposure in sets. The list goes on. As this is a Metadata field, and can be displayed in cells, please allow filtering by it too. Thank you.

Agreed, it should be searchable.  Meanwhile, you could use the Any Filter plugin:

Propose to add a few more selections for Camera Info in the smart query filter.
Specifically add Exposure Bias and Exposure program if possible.

I agree with this. Meanwhile, while waiting for Adobe to implement it (if ever), you could use the Any Filter plugin:

I install the Any Filter plug-in. 
It doesn't seem to have a criteria for source ie selecting which disk/folder to scan. I have photos spanned over 4 different disks. The plugin takes too long to scan through all my disks. All my smart-collections are limited to scan specific disk or set of disks based on my categorisations of images.

If there's a selection to specify disk and/or folder (all my lightroom folders are uniquely named) appreciate a pointer to check out further the plugin. 

 

Thanks in advance.

@CS Chua, please contact me at my support email address, and send along a full resolution screenshot (not a phone pic) of the Search filter or the Filter window.

So the latest update to Lightroom Classic added a bunch of criteria one can use to filter, but still no Exposure Bias filter. While AnyFilter is an extremely useful tool, it would help my workflow if the Exposure Bias was a "native" filter. It really is a head-scratcher since one can put Exposure Bias in the Expanded Cells Extras in the Grid View, as well as the Loupe View, so how difficult can it be to add it to the filters?

Over many years of close observation of how LR handles metadata, I get the feeling the engineers are reluctant to go near that part of the code.
