    How to remove Exif Data from RAW files?

    Is there a way to remove exif data from RAW files without converting them to JPG (so the files remain RAW files)?

    Of course there is. It's just metadata (data about data).

    Any metadata, or tag, editor can do it.

    Raw files are read-only, and not prone to manipulation, as far as I know.

    Edit: I stand corrected. (hey, I have a wife- I have no problem being "wrong" on occasion....)

    I WAS able to manipulate the data in Unix using Mac's, with assistance from Apple's Developer Tools. But that would require some knowledge of command-line Unix. If there's a piece of software out there that can do it, I would be hopeful of ImageMagick, a Unix-based image editor. But that would require a Mac, OSX 10.6 (aka Snow Leopard), and registration on Apple's developer website. A pretty specific set of system requirements.

    Even so, one is limited in the amount of manipulation possible.
