Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

Images from Olympus cameras are automatically given the caption "Olympus Digital Camera."

Steps to reproduce:

1) Upload image that came from Olympus camera
2) Alternative text and caption are automatically filled in with OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA


3) Published image displays grey border with caption OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

WordPress isn't alone in this issue; Flickr, Picasa, Windows Live Movie Maker users have also reported the same thing happening when they upload images.

This may be due to an update in r117617-wpcom in May 6th, there appears to be code for media to “Use image exif/iptc data for title and caption defaults if possible.”

This is an image that was uploaded May 5th:


And this was uploaded May 7th, after the update:
