Bernard, thank you for taking the time to review my question. After further testing, just the removal of the "Camera Maker" from the EXIF data will allow for a successful upload. I'm not sure what the root cause of the error is yet but I at least know what is making it happen.
Fails to uploads with Camera Maker set to "Canon"
Great you could find the issue !
