 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


 3) Published image displays grey border with caption OLYMPUS DIGITAL

 WordPress isn't alone in this issue; [https://www.flickr.com/groups/om-

 Maker] users have also reported the same thing happening when they upload

 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:
