Hi, I've purchased a Canon EOS 7D Mark 2 but the serial number of the camera is not being displayed in the properties of my photos. How do I insert the serial number onto my camera?

Technician's Assistant: What's the exact make and model of the camera? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Canon EOS 7D Mark 2 and I've owned it for 2 months.

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Nothing happened, I would just like to know how to insert the camera's serial number into the camera

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

No thanks

The serial number should be in the EXIF data by default - but it doesn't show up in all software. Do you see the serial number field in the EXIF data?
