Thanks for sending the file.

It appears the file you sent has corrupted metadata.

I can't see it in digiKam or any other package that reads metadata.

If I delete the image's metadata then I see it in digiKam.

I corrected the problem with my system by extracting the metadata from 
the file using exiv2, deleting the data from the file then inseting the 
data back again.

I could then see the file in digiKam and it appeared to have all the 
basic metadata I would expect.
