Issues in Creation Time (1733)


Recommended Posts

I was on vacation in France last week, but I had forgotten to adjust my camera's clock from EET to CET. I thought this was not a problem as I could shift the time in Daminion. I had created a temporary local catalog for the images as I didn't have access to my NAS. When I imported the images into my main catalog I noticed that the creation time was the original time from my camera, not the corrected one.


When I investigated the issue I found three different times in the metadata:

– The CR2 file creation time in GMT (having a 2 second difference)

– EXIF Modify date in CR2 (the original time from camera)

– XMP Date created in the sidecar .xmp file (the corrected time)


It seems that when adding files to catalog Daminion takes the EXIF Modify date from CR2 and not the updated time from the accompanying XMP.
