Hey all, I'm using the Canon Memory Card Utility to download images from the card to my hard drive.
I have it set up to download the CR2 files and create a new folder (YYYY_MM_DD) in the Pictures folder on my machine. The files are renamed into the format YYYYMMDD_[IMG#].cr2.
Here's my conundrum: When they get renamed, they are named using time which is 8 hours ahead (GMT or UST or whatever you want to call it). Since I'm in California, that means that any picture I take after 4:00pm will be put in tomorrow's folder and named as though I took it tomorrow. When I check the exif data on those photos, however, they indicate that I took them today (the exif data knows when it was taken, but the Canon software names it ahead of time)
Some technical specs:
Camera: Canon 7D, with it's time set to local time, and the time zone set to my actual time zone.
Computer: MacBook Pro Retina (Not running Mavericks, yet...) set to the correct time and time zone.
Canon software: The stuff that came with my 7D, with updates within the last month or so.
I have tried setting my camera to the England time zone, so it's internal time zone is +0:00, but the import software still names the pictures 8 hours ahead when I did that.
Has anyone run into this issue? Is there a setting somewhere that I'm over-looking? Have I posted in the right forum? (I did a search, but I'm having a hard time knowing what search terms to use to avoid all of the "how do I download images with DPP, etc..." kinds of posts.)
Cheers, and thanks for any help you can give me.
