Description

Used in IFD 0 or Camera Profile IFD of DNG files.

A UTF-8 encoded string containing the name of the camera profile. This tag is optional if there is only a single camera profile stored in the file but is required for all camera profiles if there is more than one camera profile stored in the file.

Note that the DNG specification allows UTF-8 encoded strings for this tag. This is different from normal ASCII TIFF tags, in that it's not necessarily limited to ASCII. The Count should be the number of bytes in this string, including the null terminator byte, not the character count.
