Returns in shorterned string format the camera model used to record the image. Returns missing if the metadata value is not present. The short format is determined by the first occurrence of a digit in the camera model, including all alphaNumeric characters before and after that digit up till a non-alphanumeric character, but with these interventions: 1. Canon "Mark" designations are shortened prior to conversion. 2. Names like "Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi" do not have a number and must and treated differently (see below) Examples: Canon EOS 300D DIGITAL -> 300D Canon EOS 5D -> 5D Canon EOS 5D Mark II -> 5DMkII NIKON D2X -> D2X NIKON D70 -> D70 X100,D540Z,C310Z -> X100 Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi -> XSi Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS -> XS Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi -> XTi Canon EOS Kiss Digital X -> Digital Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT -> XT EOS Kiss Digital -> Digital Canon Digital IXUS Wireless -> Wireless Canon Digital IXUS i zoom -> zoom Canon EOS Kiss Digital N -> N Canon Digital IXUS IIs -> IIs IXY Digital L -> L Digital IXUS i -> i IXY Digital -> Digital Digital IXUS -> IXUS The optional includeCharacters allows additional characters to appear before and after the digits. Note: special includeCharacters MUST be escaped as per syntax of a regular expressions (see documentation for module re) Examples: includeCharacters = '': DSC-P92 -> P92 includeCharacters = '\-': DSC-P92 -> DSC-P92 If a digit is not found in the camera model, the last word is returned. Note: assume exif values are in ENGLISH, regardless of current platform
