I download 2 cameras into separate folders, mine and my partner's.
The camera/lens combinations are different.
Has anyone ever had the exif data incorrectly saved? For example, I swear some of the rather good photos in my partner's folder were taken on my camera, that is to say, by me, but the exif data proves her camera took them.
The reason for asking the question is I noticed this had happened on some shots on a day when she didn't have her camera with her.
Aaarghh. Help. Please

She's messing with your brain. Women do that!
No, seriously, I can't work our any way the "incorrect" EXIF data could become attached to an image file straight from the camera. As a matter of interest, do those that show the wrong camera details show the correct lens and exposure details?
What do you use to download the images ?
Thank you for your repsonses.
The first batch was downloaded with Adobe Bridge and the more recent one with Lightroom. Both showed her camera and lens
I believe the exposure information is correct.
I was prepared to believe the first batch was corect as we both took pictures at the same time and place, however, this recent batch was on a day when her camera was locked in the house. I was with her all the time we were out and would have noticed a camera surreptitiously going up to her eye.
Any thoughts appreciated
Are the two cameras similar in any way; both Nikon DSLRs for example?
I just wonder if Adobe is 'reading' the camera model (not the rest of the EXIF) from a database or cache somewhere within itself and tripping itself up.
Just a thought.
I use Lightroom and the Exif data for images taken with my D200 just shows D200. Images taken with my D700, the Exif shows D700 and, separately, the Serial Number of that body.
This is in both LR 3.6 and LR 4.1 so I suspect it may be a camera, not a LR pronlem.
Hence, if the bodies are the same model but are not giving their serial numbers, that might be the problem.
Not sure if this helps.
