 Some investigation revealed that this default metadata is bugging people
 on plenty of other services. I downloaded some sample images from
 different Olympus cameras and the data appeared fairly consistent.

 I think that we should go ahead and remove the string when we find it and
 use other information if available. The Olympus cameras store the original
 filename in another field, which we should be able to use to match the
 behavior with other camera vendors.

 The description field gets totally overwritten and I didn't see any
 obvious alternatives that Olympus is using. Regardless, if the user has
 modified these fields, this data ''will not'' be overwritten.
