GeoTagged Photos to Points; -9999 in Direction field

The output of my GeoTagged Photos to Points tool gives a "-9999" in the direction field. Examining the EXIF data of the photos, I can see that they do, in fact, have a bearing embedded. I'm wondering why this information isn't captured in the output feature class?

Hey Brian, 

What device is being used to capture the images? Based on the syntax of exif_data.png file, I am wondering if the Geoprocessing tool is having a hard time parsing the EXIF data into a readable format that it can write to the attribute table? 

Are you able to provide a txt file output of the EXIF information? I would like to compare it to some images that I have on my end.

Yup, I've attached it to this response.

Device is a Garmin Virb

Thanks for the help!
