Hasselblad True Zoom Time Stamp

2017-09-21, 14:10 PM

I just received the Hasselblad True Zoom camera and tried taking some pictures.  Everything works great, except the time stamp of the pictures.  I took a picture and went to view it and I didn't see it in my camera album.  Since the phone is new, I didn't have many pictures to search through.  The file modified date is correct, but when I look at the meta data of the file, it has a time stamp of February 1, 1970 at 2:52 am.  Does the Hasselblad True Zoom have a different place to set the date and time that is separate from the phone's date and time, or is there something else I need to do?

Hello,

 

I just noticed this the other day with mine as well. 

Are you saving photos to an SD card?

 

Do you use Google Photos as a viewing app?

 

The reason I ask these question are:

 

  • I found that when saving photos to a SD card the time stamp was wrong.
    • When saving to the internal storage, things worked as expected.
  • Google Photos app recently updated and I can now see my photos that are time stamped "1970" on the day they were taken.

I have passed this info on to the Moto folks. I hope this might help a little bit.

 

Thank you,

J

Yes, I am saving my pictures to a SD card to save on internal memory.  I want too save in the RAW format.  Also, I am using the Google photo shop to view my pictures.  Please let me know what Motorola comes back with for a response.

I installed an app that lets you look at the photo meta data.  The meta data has the correct time stamp, so it is something with Google photos and how it reads the meta data from the true view camera.  Although, the time stamp looks the same when I compared a true view photo and a photo taken with the phone camera.

So, I used this Moto Mod at my son's birthday party this weekend and noticed something.  I set the camera to take photos in the RAW format, so it creates two files per picture, a .dng and .jpg.  So I check Google Photos and all of the .dng files are seen with the correct time stamp.  All the .jpg files are seen as a date in 1970.  Not sure if you noticed that before or not.

I am having the same problem with my new phone and camera mod.  I've found that everything works normally, saving to the SD card, if I uncheck the box about saving the location.  Mine continually showed I was in 1980 when saving to the card, even though the date/time stamp on the actual image was correct.  By disabling the location, it has fixed itself.  That is frustrating, though, since one might want the location to be included in the information.

This bug still exists today...

I made this program to correct date & time on the photos by hasselblad mod on computer, not able to do on your phone though...

Thanks for putting together the fix!

 

@Lenovo, any plans to put a fix together for this and update the Hasselblad mod? This is pretty annoying.
