Photo V2 Metadata time shot not correct


Recommended Posts

It seems like AP V2 is using UTC rather than local time to set the time a photo was taken. I took a photo of my computer screen at 3:38 PM my time (UTC -8) but the metadata for the photo is showing 11:38 PM. This is happening for jpg and Nikon raw files. The correct local time is given in the metadata when opened in V1.

Another user mentioned that, too, but it's not logged as a bug yet that I can see.

The date/time widget does use local time (if you change your system settings you'll see the widget adjusting to match; on Windows you have to restart the app to see this update though), but it looks like the value we're initially passing into it has the local time offset erroneously re-applied.

Similar comment.  Using MacMini (M1) with system 13.0.1; Photo2 v 2.0.4. live in UTC -7; Issue is with Metadata panel, category EXIF, "Date Shot" field.  

Category: EXIF, "Date Shot" field shows incorrect time, the time displayed is my local time minus 7 hours (i.e. 7 hours earlier than I took shot);

Meanwhile in Category: Detail > XMP > "Create Date" field shows correct time (as does the "Modify Date" field); and in Category: Detail > EXIF >"Date Time Original" field shows correct time;

Lastly, in the Category: RAW  "<exif:DateTimeOriginal>" is also correct
