Lightroom Classic: Exif data change and editing

I have got two ideas or wishes:

1. It would be great to be able to change camera and modell in the exif datdat. For example: when I take pictures with an anlog camera and import them in digital form later on, I usually get the model of the scanner used instead of the camera. An other example are pictures taken with your cel.-phone. Apps often list themself as camera and model, which is obviously wrong. I would like to change that in the exif data ...

2. As I sometime work with several catalogues and as I try to exchange pictures with other colleagues, it would be great to have all keywords and tags written in the exif data as well. For now all links to keywords and pictures are only stored in the specific catalogue. Each time I send pictures to another colleage, he/she will get the list of keywords and tags used, but without the linkeage. Sending and using keywords with linked pictures in several cataloges is hardly possible as the linkeage has to be done once again. Exif data with keywords attached to each picture could change that and would open up the possibility to keep any linkeage right away no matter which catalogue is used..

> Exif data with keywords attached to each picture could change that

Keywords are IPTC data, and they can already be stored with the photos themselves using the Metadata menu > Write Metadata to Files if you're sharing them directly from their folder, or through the export dialog if you're not stripping the metadata.

The Capture Time to Exif plugin can do this (despite its name).
