Allow for Setting tags and metadata on import
When importing, I would like to be able to set some tags and metadata to all images in this import (film roll?)
e.g.: I am importing a shoot for a certain client at a certain location, so I want to add <jobname>, <client>, <location> to all images in this film roll. - It would make life easy to set all this and be done before hitting [import].
It would also be good to be able to set some defaults in this in the settings dialogue. e.g. creator, publisher, copyright ...

Will it be possible to set tags and metadata in the import dialogue also when importing from camera/card?
I would like to not only set the defaults for this in the preferences, but also to override them for a specific import. (e.g. location related stuff or which job this import is for, etc...)

Yes, that's intended behavior.
Using these settings when importing from camera shouldn't be hard to add, maybe someone wants to add it?
The tags set are used when importing from camera, but - different from folder import - I can not overwrite/change them when importing from camera. essentially, my request is just about adding the same input fields that are present in folder import to the camera import dialogue.
As for overwriting the settings with every import, I would like to suggest to make it possible to set the default values for these tags in the preferences and then the possibility to override the default during import without changing the default values. So the next time I run an import, the tags are again set to what I put into the preferences (which is likely what I want to use most of the time) and I then get to add/change what applies for this particular import.
That way I can for example add a default set of tags to every import and add stuff that only applies this once without having to remove these one-off tags on the next import.
