time in exif incorrectly

Recommended Posts

Peter I think that you have missed something there. The files in M9 can only have the time/date info that is set in the camera. Somewhere along the line your camera has been set differently. Did you replace the firmware or have a problem with the reserve battery failing in the camera? There is no other input like a GPS.

Are you sure that you are not looking a a time modified field (that is the last time you edited the file) instead of time created /digitized (when you actually shot the file)



But you can fix the info afterwards if you need to. Search for EXIF editors You need a batch editing tool.

A common thing when people travel to different time zones and do not reset their camera. I had to change about 2000 files from one trip

What application do you use to inspect the EXIF data? Is the file an original JPG, an original DNG, or a converted DNG? How do you ingest the files? When you press the info button in the camera while viewing an image, does it show the correct time?


If it is off by exactly 7 hours it might be some software along the way that is making wrong assumptions about the time zone.

I would guess its what Geoff has said Peter, you may be looking at the time the file was 'modified' rather than the shooting time. For instance did you download the photo 7 hours after taking it?

      OK, I give up. The SL2 camera does NOT want me to set date and time. I can change their format, but I can't set actual values from the camera. I've switched off the sync via Smartphone option. I can select individual year, month, and date. But no control I try (no dials or buttons) does anything to change their values.
      Any ideas what is going on here??

      Hello everyone!
      I'm new here, nice to meet you.
      It's a little bit of a let down to see the M10 doesn't have a "real" BULB mode but it's limited to 125s.
      Similar to the Leica Q...
      It's also weird that the time is ISO dependent.
      I was wondering, why is that? The SL gets to 30min for example or the D810 can up to 1h30min and beyond i T mode.
      Thanks for your time,

      When I format my SD card in my M typ240 and start shooting, the 100LEICA folder that is created is dated 31 DEC 2047 12:00 AM... Never had this with my M9.
      My camera-clock is working correctly. I'd like the newly created folder to have the date and time of creation (of shooting)... Anyone else experiences this? Something I missed in the manual and I can do to prevent folders being 'created' in 2047...?
