I have been scratching my head on this for quite some time now. Let's see what mediainfo says on an image -

I went to mediainfo upstream and saw this page but was unable to comprehend which feature to vote for so it will give more metadata info. for images.

I did also scour the local manpage as well as --help but was not able to get far. I do know that mediainfo is suited more for video and audio files rather than images but would be nice if one tool could do it all.

I am running exiftool 10.80-1 and

$ mediainfo --version
MediaInfo Command line, 
MediaInfoLib - v18.03

on Debian testing.

What you're looking for is for mediainfo to support EXIF metadata (which is not one of the listed proposals on that page as far as I can tell). You should suggest it to them if you want the feature.
