    Posted: 25 November 2019 at 09:24
Hi,
I've got an A7Rii and I have the correct time entered into the camera for my region (Eastern Australia).
For some reason, after a day of shooting, after I import the images into Lightroom, when I export them, they go into two different dated folders, one the correct date and the next is the date of the day after.
I'm assuming this is a camera issue as Lightroom would read the date and time in the meta data and that date should be the same on all images taken that day.
Can anyone shed any light as to why this is happening?
Cheers!

First confirm whether it's a camera issue or not by examining the date and time of the original camera files using something other than Lightroom.

Ok, I just took a pic and checked out the image data via properties and it matches the correct time the image was taken.
Thoughts?

Just looked at the properties of two pics taken on the same day but in different folders yet the date of the second image is in the folder with the next day date. I guess this is a LR or Windows issue.

I don't see how Windows can be blamed since Lightroom is importing the files. Google "lightroom import wrong date" to see many hits, including this one.
