Here is how to correct the time or date:

  • Determine how much of an adjustment needs to be made.
  • In the Library module, select all the photos that need to be corrected.
  • In the right hand column, scroll down to Metadata and open the panel
  • At the top of the panel select Default for the metadata type to display
  • Scroll to Capture Time and click on the time.
  • Make the appropriate adjustment in the popup window
  • All the selected photos will be adjusted by the same amount

If you are a Canon shooter, Canon's free EOS Utility allows you to sync multiple cameras to your computer's time. We do this when shooting events with multiple cameras.

I dont use Canons software much, but I have it. I manually synced my cameras a couple months ago. Is it normal for them to shift?

Thanks for the help. Ill figure out how to sync in DPP and do it before events in the future. This isnt my first time with this issue, but I just happened to use my 2nd camera more than normal recently.

Once set , the time shouldn’t shift .

The only thing I’ve come across is if I leave a camera unused for an extended period, with no battery in , then all date and time settings are lost and need to be re entered- but it wouldn’t show a wrong time .

If going to do another wedding , sync the cameras the night before.
