    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
