You can add the copyright details like your name etc. in the EOS Utility application under the "Setup" menu

Yes it's under the copyright info settings on the bodies that have it,or at least it is on the 7D as mentioned above.

I had a 40D before my 7D and as far as I can remember it doesn't have that option.

I've been able to enter this on my old 20D and 50D. I'm pretty sure it can be done on all Canon DSLR's

It's an option in the EOS utility, as stated before. I'm pretty sure I did it on my 40D before going to the 1D3.

I'm not sure if this 'Owner' field shows up in normal EXIF details - The OP may be talking about the 'Copyright' and/or 'Creator' fields you can edit in metadata in programs like Bridge or Lightroom??

(Short of hacking the file, you can't edit this 'owner' field in anything but EOS Utility as far as I know)

It can be done through Zoombrowser as well.

The camera can be set using the EOS Utility with the camera connected to the computer. If done in this manner then the owner info is added to every image the camera takes. There may be other programs that can change this info in the camera but EOS Utility is what most Canon folks use.

The user info and other EXIF and IPTC/XMP data can also be added and edited with many programs specifically for the purpose as well as many photo viewing/editing programs.

My 40D writes a lot of info (including my name) to each image in the camera. I use Downloader Pro to add "job" specific info to a group of photos at import into the computer. I tweak and expand on this info in Lightroom. With RAW files the IPTC info get written to the XMP sidecar file. If the RAW file is converted to DNG the info gets written directly to the file and is one of the advantages of converting CR2 to DNG.

like ive said, i dont have a 40D but in 7D, this is an in-camera option. i believe its more common now that the 7D, i also believe, the 5D2 has it as well.

when i use lightroom, i actually strip the metadata (when i want to) so it only shows my photography name...which is Carpe DM Photography.

I dont really use EOS Utility. but i will try using it when im gonna do some star trails and studio work to show the models the shot. so suffice to say, i dont have much experience using EOS Utility/Zoombrowser.

The 5D MK II needs the EOS utility too. Has the 7D got a digital keyboard...

OK, the 5D MK II does not do that.

On a 40D.Plug the camera into your computer,start EOS utility,then Camera Settings /Remote shooting.Select the Tools tab (second tab)this is the setup menu and then select owners name and edit accordingly
