Olympus sponsor?

Travel Forums Travel Photography Olympus sponsor?

I've seen many photos recently of several members where there is a subtitle 'OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA'. I first thought it was coincidence that it happened a few times. So, what's the deal here?

When photos are uploaded using the bulk-upload page, TP retrieves the EXIF data of the photos and automatically fill them in the information form. Somehow, for Minolta and Olympus cameras, the field in the EXIF data it captured for the description box has the brand name of the cameras. Members can still remove that information before confirming what the bulk-upload page has detected, but I guess there are some who didn't bother changing it.

Let me discribe it for people who are not firm in the computer language(like me) in a simple way.
example how it looks when you upload a photo:

Country: fill in the country where you took the photo
Title : Beach at......
Description: funny day with....
Tags: beach,people....

If you dont fill in the description part it may show up OLYMPUS DIGITAL....
that happens with my last uploaded photos for the food competition.
I have seen it also for an other camera typ,so it is not only Olympus.
(I would not refuse to get sponsored from them since I realy take my photos with 2 Olympus cameras;)

These strings are pretty useless as actual photo descriptions, though. Overlords: any chance to filter out just those default strings, so those photos would show with no description at all instead?
