It seems that you have to set up proper date in your camera. Reviewers will check out exif information in submited photos. If the date from exif is different that your date on model release they reject of your submited photos. ROFTL. How nice.

How else are they supposed to check the date accuracy of your MR?

Just write in your model release that the date in your camera is wrong and that the date on the model release is correct. This happened to me twice recently. 1st time when I got a new camera, 2nd time when I travelled to Australia and did a photo shoot while I was there visiting family. Australia is about 15 hours ahead of my regular time zone.

Well, this is really good topic to discuss. Date on camera should not be of any consequence.


1. We are NOT required to supply EXIF data with our images (except for editorial).


2. WE are responsible for the accuracy of information we provide in MR.

Save as always gives exif. I'm sure you do a 'save as' when you submit to istock.

I had an editorial rejected because of an incorrect in-camera date. The day and month were right but the year was one year early. I had never noticed but a sharp eyed inspector did. If I am saying this was the scene on such a date then that date really ought to be correct.

Setting up the date properly will also help you organizing your files within some programs. When I use Aperture I always look at the date in the Exif data.

I have world time on my camera. It is set now to UTC-5. If I go to Sydney I am in UTC + 10. I should not need to change the clock on my camera. The inspector should be able to read the time zone on the camera and adjust the date accordingly. Apparently this is not the case. Is there an industry standard for setting time zone?

It is good to include it in the description if not obvious.

It's a lot of work and research for inspecting a photo. I'm not sure that's a reasonable request. If I go to Australia from europe, I have enough time iin the plane to adjust the clock in the camera.

One of the things I like about Lightroom is that you can easily change the Metadata time on a file. Just go to the Library module/metadata/Edit Capture time. You can change it by a few hours or to anything you want as long as its not in the future. Problem Solved.

tempering with metadata is worse than if you didn't have it at all.

Yeah, the request to have accurate data is not an unreasonable one and it's something that is pretty easily remedied if you do need to change the EXIF. There are many rules dictating what iStock will and won't accept and this is just one of them that, for most people, is a non issue.
