B1: Change timestamp problem?

Post by nightflyer »

Using Change timestamp window I cannot modify Exif Date Taken as I want, because when I select this date to change, "Use EXIF data en time when avaliable" is inactive.
I think it is a misfeature, it doesn't allow to correct for daylight savings time if camera clock is not adjusted.

It's by design, so you want to assign Exif date taken with other EXIF date??

Yes.
As I wrote, it is useful when you forget to change in-camera clock when winter/summer time is changing.
Also if you travel to another time zone and forget to set your camera clock.

The feature is now implemented in beta 1... but with 'EXIF Date modified' whereas my camera uses 'EXIF Date taken' and 'EXIF Date digitized'... :(

I think it should be 'EXIF Date taken' as default for 'Date to change'... :?

I've just made a draft for a new dialog design in topic "Change timestamp: Layout" which might solve this problem.

Verified fixed in Beta 2. Now, all EXIF and file dates can be changed. Very good, Pierre. :-)
