BMPC Date And Time Issue

PostThu Jun 08, 2017 2:01 pm

The date and time on the pocket cinema is set to current date and time. The resulting clips date and time are hours ahead. It appears as if the date and time stamp of the resulting clips are always set on Australian time. Firmware is up to date. I wish to have this pocket cinema camera stamp the correct date and time on the clips. Note: I have tried contacting the company several times and without a single response. June 08-2017.

I'm also trying to figure out a fix for this. Did you find it?

**(update) I hooked the computer up to the camera and just started the BM program. It said Camera Firmware up to date. I did some new test shots, brought them over to the computer, and HUH! Problem gone. In the manual it says when you do this it sets the camera to your computer's date/time.

I wonder if I change the date manually again, will it go back to the weird 7 hours off?
