I have thousands of scanned images, scanned by different services, that all show up with “Unknown camera”. I also have lots of video that also shows “Unknown camera”.
So I wanted a way to better group all those, and found an interesting solution.
Using exiftool, I basically add make and model to the xmp file associated with the images/videos that say “Unknown Camera”, like this.
exiftool -overwrite_original -make=“Whoever scanned the image” -model=“Whoever scanned the image”
After that, the image now shows “Whoever scanned the image” as camera, instead of “Unknown Camera”
It also shows up as a camera in the list of cameras in filter and the dashboard.
Hope others find it as useful as I do.
