Alter image timestamp

    There has always been a batch rename facility. That does not alter the principle that Capture One doesn't like to alter original raw files, I would think.

    I'm learning the hard way to remember to sync times on my cameras when I am using more than one at once.

    The part I don't understand is that Capture One could allow timestamp modification exactly the same way they allow other pieces of metadata to be modified -- as an entry in the database or a .cos file.  There is no need to modify the original file, just treat the image inside of Capture One as if it had been.

    I'd like the ability to adjust most metadata fields.  Often I know better, i.e. when scanning negatives I may know the camera, lens, aperture, speed, and ISO.  I have to adjust those values outside of Capture One or note them as comments in the description.

    Twice every year I notice how much difference is between standard time and camera clocks. Some cameras vary only seconds, others up to 5 minutes. Each time when I alter camera times to adjust to the (stupid) European summer- and wintertime I see how poor the timers of the cameras work. This is not only for videographers a problem, but also when using a recorded GPS track and mark positions on it. If camera timer and GPS time differ, the position will also differ.

    In Aperture I could adjust the time stamp with an offset. And choose wether I want to alter the "original" (and in most cases wrong) recording date/time or leave it.

    Like Marco Hyman, I'd also like to correct the time of a reproduction of a scan or reproduction to the value the  (film) photo was likely taken. On most photo scans this is guesswork, but occasionally there's a clock (railway stations, churches, public watches, wrist watches) visible in the picture. This would make organising, sorry, managing the files easier. But for that one would need a proper DAM...

    No such feature in Capture One that I know of. You  don't even see Properties when you right click an image.

    On my lists of "right-click things to do" there's no "properties", neither in finder, nor in C1. Not to speak of a couple, hundreds or thousands of photos I need (or want) to correct.

    But don't bother, Wallace. I just like to show what my expectations to a well-made and well-thought DAM are, at least in terms of EXIF-editing of multiple RAWs:

    1. I'd like to see a calendar, as I sometimes mentioned taking pictures on a certain place/location in my old agendas (I'm talking about scanned/digitized photos here)
    2. Nice to have: adding a time zone
    3. If RAW and exported or saved (out of camera) JPGs are in the same folders, their names will be treated the same way when modifying date/time
    4. I can choose wether I want to set the same document date (as the EXIF date is) or not. And since C1 doesn't allow to sort for EXIF or document date (it's only document date, I believe), I decided I can live with a false document date for my own pictures. In 1988 there was no Z7, no Capture One and no Mac in my house. If a date is faked so obviously, I don't see any problems - except with dates before 1970 on some OSs. Or before 1900 on most OSs.

    Now I find out I made a mistake, wanted to change for 17:14 instead of 7:14. Alright, there's "modify date".

    And again I can decide wether document- and EXIF-date should be changed.

    Would I want that in C1? Yes and no. Yes for practical reasons, no for not giving C1 more reasons to crash than it already has in it's weak code. Yesterday it crashed three times, just after altering the orientation of 150 or so imported pictures. And when it does so, after restarting the app the thumbnails show the old orientation, but the catalog has the new one. Partly. So turning them again 90° CW, some of them will stand upside down.

    Lots of fun...

    But if I think about, I could buy 5 licences of Graphic Converter for the cost of 1 C1 update...

    Looks like the "Wallace Durgan" post was just Spam preparation.
