SimplePCI based files (.cxd) used to import with metadata for when the image was taken:
File Info First Field Date Time = 1.3216748731566E10
File Info Last Field Date Time = 1.3216748736269E10
Currently (bioformats 6.5.1, maybe earlier), this information is no longer found in the metadata in recently taken .cxd files, however older .cxd files still show this metadata.
I suspect that Hamamatsu HCImage might have changed the field names in newer versions, and it is also still capable of getting this info from within HCimage indicating these timestamps are still within the files. Would it be possible to check if bio-formats can be updated to extract the timestamps from newer .cxd files as well?
Here are two example files:
Maybe someone from bio-formats can take a look?
