Adjust time on Ingest?
« on: September 25, 2007, 04:56:46 PM »
Is there a way to adjust the capture time when ingesting?

I use mostly date/time to name my shots.  Right now when I forget to change the camera time, I need to 1) Ingest, 2) adjust time, 3) rename.

Thanks,

Russ

No, there isn't such a feature.  How would you necessarily know that you needed to adjust the capture time before any of your images were downloaded?

For me, I know I need to adjust the time when I realize I've forgotten to change the clock for daylight savings time or the first day of a trip where I've changed time zones.  I usually realize this before I ingest.

It would be a helpful feature, but the way it works now is okay with me.

I know because I know I'm in a different time zone and didn't change the clock in a particular camera body.

While you can't change the capture time on ingest, you can easily do this afterwards.  Select the photos you want to change, and use the Tools|Adjust Capture Dates and Times dialogue.

Does this answer your question?
