    Hi Ken. Thank you for finding the cause and solution to this problem, and especially for sharing your solution so clearly. I had exactly this issue after my recent trip to the USA, where I took most photos with my Olympus camera, but also some with iPhones. After I returned home to Australia and imported photos from both kinds of cameras, they were out of order, of course. When I imported photos from each device, I had used keywords to identify the camera used for each photo, so it was easy to create a smart album to select the Olympus photos to correct their time zones. Thanks again for your efforts. Jeff Dickson

    You’re welcome! I’m just glad to help someone else who had the same problem as it’s the very reason why I continue to maintain my blog. 🙂

    Finally — a solution! I traveled to Syracuse to Italy with an iPhone XS Max and a Nikon D7500. My problem was that my iPhone was set to the right to the right time zone and the correct time. I set my Nikon to the right time but I did NOT change the time zone to Italy! Thanks for the explaination!!
