Digital author of photo?

At the risk of sounding stupid if this is an obvious thing but I was hoping someone could help me with this please?

I recently bought an OMD EM5 from Ebay and when I looked at the properties (details-author/copyright) of my photos I noticed that there is a name there. Having checked the properties of photos taken on my D200 and G10 the author/copyright section is blank. So this is obviously something that has been set in camera but having Googled it I can't find anything that relates to removing this or putting my name there instead.

Has anyone else come across this with secondhand equipment and does anyone know how I can change it please? Many thanks!!

Anne

There should be a menu setting for changing this information. Probably in the set-up menu.

If all else fails there ought to be a reset to defaults facility so you can set the camera up from scratch.

Thanks Graham. I did wonder about that but the menu is probably one of the most confusing ones I have seen and the instruction book doesn't go into the half of it . There is a CD with it, possibly there will be access to a more detailed book on there. I didn't want to reset it because it took ages to go through (along with online help ) and set the camera up. I was hoping someone with the camera might know where to find it.

Can't think of anyone who has got one of these. E-mail to customer support?
