me 6D? No... Sorry for the confusion.
Ah, yes, about that...

I was looking at the page that you get when you click on a camera model, to browse Flickr stats for that camera, kind of like this page for the 5D:
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/cameras/canon/eos_5d/">www.flickr.com/cameras/canon/eos_5d/</a>
So I took a photo from LightRoom and exported it, then opened it up using VI, a very basic Unix text editor and modified the EXIF data directly, changing the 5D to 6D, to see if Flickr would generate any kind of listing for a non-existent camera. It didn't.
I had intended to delete the photo straight away, but people had started commenting on it. I realized that I had for to mark it private for my test.

Sure enough, within minutes, someone had noticed the EXIF tag and written a blog post about it, so I got in touch and explained what happened.

I had no idea that people paid so much attention to EXIF data...
