:) Hello !

• Like you can see on THIS PAGE, .PEF (Pentax) is supported at reading only,
and I'm not sure that some possible new variants are… :|

Hi Clo :)

Yes, it is the pentax raw format and it is reading only.
Anyway, timestamp is related with the file system and and don´t rely on any format.

The exception here is that XnView allow EXIF dates as reference values.

I tried to change the timestamp of a file selection that included JPGs and PEFs.
In the end, the JPGs timestamp was changed following the "EXIF - date taken" field while all PEFs received the system time.

Then I checked the Change timestamp window and it really don´t show the EXIF values from PEF files.
This is unexpected as EXIF fields of PEF files are accessible from properties window.

I´d like anyone to test the "Change timestamp" function with your raw files (pentax, canon, nikon, oly...) and answer this question:

Can you use EXIF dates from your raw files to change it´s timestamp ?

Thanks in advance.

Right for PEF, EXIF is not readed

My main use is the timestamp correction function and its working OK in beta 4.

Anyway, I just tried to change EXIF date taken/digitized/modified from a PEF file and it doesn´t work. With JPG it works.

You can only change EXIF date in jpeg
