Manually Changing Camera Metadata for "Unknown" Cameras

Every so often, especially if I edit a photo in Photoshop, or stitch panoramas together in an app other than an Adobe product, and in some other situations, a photo will show up in LrC as being from an "unknown" camera. With the particular form of OCD that I seem to suffer from, it makes me a bit crazy to have LrC not recognise the camera that produced them, and it would make searching for some of these photos difficult if I am searching for, as an example, shots taken with my drone. Is there no way to manually change the metadata to "tell" LrC what camera (or what lens, or whatever other metadata is not being recorded properly) took the photo?

At least two plugins let you change the camera and exposure EXIF data inside LR: LensTagger and Capture Time To Exif.

Use a third party metadata editor (exif data)

Thanks; do you have a recommendation of an app that will do what I want? I have tried to download a few, but none (so far) allows me to edit the camera info.

Thanks, I’ll give them a try!

Sent from my iPad. Typos are due to lack of manual dexterity rather than poor erudition.
