Identifying pictures taken on 'this' device

Is there a way to identify which of the MediaStore images has been
on 'this' device, as opposed to pictures exported/downloaded from an
external source ?

I have started my search by creating a Camera.PictureCallback and
registering it
by  camera.takePicture() only to realize that it only gets called upon
images taken from _my own_ application -  and idea goes to basket.

I have also looked within MediaStore.Images.Media for fields that
might carry relevant information, with no luck.

 The camera application in the Cupcake branch does it somehow. You
could try looking at the code in packages/apps/Camera.

have different implementation of Accelerometer sensor, do I need to
target different versions of OSes with my App or they are backward
