    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.

    i think it is one of the choices on LR3 import. You can import something without any exif data if you want.

    The Canon EOS utility, which supposedly can connect to all the Canon digital cameras through the USB port, has an option on the main page "Camera setting/Remote Shooting". When you press that menu, then the window changes to another display with "My Camera", "Setup" and "My Menu" options on a ribbon bar at the center of the window. Choosing "Setup" takes to a menu where you can change the Owner's name, Author, Copyright, Date/Time, etc. Changes here are written back to the camera. At least on mine.

    • Turn on your D90.
    • Push the Menu button
    • On the left highlight the 'Wrench'. That's the Set-Up Menu
    • Scroll down till you see "Image Comment"
    • Enter the Image Comment menu screen
    • Select "Input Comment"
    • Compose your image comment "(C) 2010 Eric Holmes Photography"
    • Once composed push OK
    • Select "Attach" and verify there is a check mark in the box.
    The D90 doesn't have as much space for a comment as the D3S has.

    You can also add it to the IPTC fields when you upload images, using either Nikon Transfer, Lightroom, or Bridge.
