    I guess I found out who sold me the camera LOL. It is showing his name on my EXIF Data. How do I put my name on there?

    I think you have to do it via the software that came with the camera, if memory serves me correctly. I read it in the manual.

    Take a look at the manual, the menu is where you will find the specific location for entering the camera user info.

    Ship it to me...I'll send you back an old Nikon D70 in trade, with whatever artist name you want loaded into that field...problem solved. I'll keep the defective Canon, and you can have the Nikon. What name would you like placed into that field?

    You have to use the EOS Utility software.

    I used the EOS utility to update the camera owner name info on my 40D. So your 5D maybe the same.
