d300s copyright fails transfer to Apple's Aperture
Although the copyright appears in the metadata on the Nikon review screen, it fails to appear on Aperture. I have seen this same issue in the Apple community support without resolution. It may be that the copyright I am wishing to attach must be accomplished post image in the aperture import. Will any text or image content generated in Nikon flow through on the import? Thank You.

I avoid the issue by having Aperture apply a copyright line in the metadata to each
image as it's imported. As in this case, even the jpeg images from my iphone get

In "D300s copyright info to Aperture?" the OP never got back to us about what he found out. I would use a really good EXIF reader utility and see exactly where within the EXIF data Aperture is recording the copyright data. I believe Nikon uses the EXIF 0x8298 Copyright tag and Aperture could use one of the ITPC or XMP copyright tags. There are post processing tools that can copy the copyright data of the EXIF tag to the ITPC or XMP tags or visa versa, or you might be able to create a script to perform the task.

I'm not sure which version of Aperture you're using. I can speak for version 3. In version 3, there are two fields where copyright information can be displayed. One is in EXIF data, and another in IPTC data. Make sure you're looking at the correct field.
The EXIF field is the one where your copyright notice set in your camera will be displayed.
The EXIF field is called "Copyright", and the IPTC field is called "Copyright Notice". You may have one turned on to be displayed, but not the other. These can be turned on and off in metadata presets.
At least, that's how it works in my copy.
Hope this helps,

Just to back the original claim, I have the latest version of Aperture 3, and a Nikon D300S with the latest firmware. I have the Artist info and Copyright information checked and filled out in the D300S, I have gone through everything I can think of in Aperture that would hinder/allow such information to be imported with the images.
End Result: Aperture 3 does not seem to import the Copyright or Artist information from the D300S settings, even as of Jan 2011.
The resolution posted by another user above, about having Aperture automatically fill this information out is what I will be doing. It would be nice if Aperture was able to handle the information coming from my D300S, which was one of the features that excited me about the D300S.
I love Aperture 3, especially with Photomatix, I just love the way it versions photos and makes adjustments, this is not a deal breaker... but... this is an annoying little detail with importing that I would think they could have taken care of with a patch by now, since the D300S is by no means a new kid on the block, and is widely used.
