First you need ExifTool, you can download it for free from here:

  1. Unzip it to a folder, e.g. c:\program files\exiftool – on Mac you start the installer, exiftool will then be installed to /usr/bin.
  2. Now copy the pictures from your memory card into a temporary folder, e.g. c:\temp\convert on Mac for example ~/Convert
    (do not do that on the original pictures, always use a copy!)
  3. Open a command prompt (Mac: a terminal session) and switch to the directory with the pictures.
    Windows: cd c: \temp\convert
    Mac: cd ~/convert
  4. Now let ExifTool write the model name of the D850 into the pictures.
    Windows: c:\program files\exiftool\exiftool.exe -model=”NIKON D850″ *.NEF
    Mac: /usr/bin/exiftool -model=”NIKON D850″ *.NEF
