Set Owner Name in your DSLR

Did you know you can set the owner name on your camera? Yes, that’s right most digital camera’s allow you to set the owner name either inside the camera via your Menu or using the Software that came with the camera. On my EOS 400D, this cannot be done directly in the camera but via the EOS utility provided by Canon. Newer Canon EOS can allow you to set the owner name directly in the camera. On Nikon Camera this can be done directly via the Camera Menu consult your manual on how to.


  1. Connect the camera to your computer via the USB cable and launch the EOS Utility
  2. Click on the Tools button (represented by wrench and hammer) and then on the Owner’s Name
  3. Type in your name in the box provided and click OK to save.

All your photos from then on will have the name embedded inside your photographs.
