    anyone notice in picture details that the timestamp is wrong? there are 2 timestamps in a pic, a 24hr one and a 12hr one. the 24hr one is correct but the 12hr one is delayed 5 hrs exactly. anyone know why this is or how it can be fixed?

    The time that's part of the file name is in 24-hour format, and matches the local time at the time the picture was taken. The information in the details (EXIF information, I assume) shows the time as 5 hours earlier. Is this what you're talking about?

    Almost sounds like its in GMT on the pic time stamp. I'll check mine tonight (can't do anything on work laptop).
    You could easily use a tool like exiftool to adjust the time stamp.

    I just checked my pics and everything matches perfectly, both the filename and pic details.

    Under Settings > Location and security settings, did you ever check one of those boxes to have your DROID find your location? I can't think of any other location type settings that I've ever used. :confused:

    hmmm it seems to be correct now. just took 2 pics and they have the correct timestamp. i'm gonna try it again later or tomorrow. seems like it doesn't happen all the time because i took some pics a while back and they had the correct timestamp. and then pics after that date were not correct. and now its correct again. will have to investigate further.

    Under Settings is Date & time settings. Setting it to Automatic (use network-provided values) causes the time zone value to be grayed out. Mine is set to Automatic, but the time zone is displayed correctly.

    The exif time is always there you can't turn it off, the only thing you can turn off or on is the location data.

    On my HTC EVO, pictures with geo-tag have the wrong time (looks like GMT). Pictures without geo-tag have the correct time.

    Geo-tag is kind of cool, but if it's going to mess up exif time, I'll leave it off.
