How to extract metadata information using exiftool for specific model of camera???

I have a file of images, about 100 images. I can display the information of all these images using the command metacam 0.* jpg. Using this i get all 100 files displayed, were some open and some show the information of the image, but this is an unrealistic way of finding specific images taken with a specific camera model.

However, i want to find specific images that have been taken with a Canon PowerShot camera, however i am unsure as to how to extract this metadata, i was looking at some websites and they do not even have PowerShot model as a recognizable tag in exiftool? Can anybody help me out please?

Thanks in advance.

You can use a command like this:

exiftool -if '$model =~ /SD950IS/' DIR

to list metadata only for files from a specific camera model in directory "DIR".
