    UTC vs local time possible? Looks like a time zone thing since just the hours are different.

    Maybe Steve, but as all other software interprets as expected this must be a L3 bug yes? It could also be that Luminar is not applying the 24 hour clock as of course 18.28  on the 24 hour clock is equal to 06.28 pm.

    Hi! You are right, we are aware of this issue. The time is correct, the app just doesn't indicate whether it is am or pm. 
    We will fix it soon.

    Why should it use am or pm? Why not just use the 24 hour clock like Lr, ON1, Preview, Apple Photos etc? Or is that what the solution will be - use of 24 hour clock to differentiate between am and pm?

    Nastia,

    I believe Steve is correct and it is reporting UTC. My photos are all off by 8 hours (not 12), so it is more than a 12 hour vs 24 hour thing. My time zone just happens to be 8 hours offset from GMT.

    Bob, I am being thick here but so far as the UK is concerned it is out by 12 hours, which supports the am/pm argument. But then I do not know what time zone it is working to. I would imagine it is my computers? No doubt Nastia will have a word with the devs and clarify.

    Colin, you're not being thick at all. First of all, I apologize as I have posted in the Mac forum, but I'm running the Windows version so there may be completely different behavior between our versions.

    For the record, I decided to run an experiment to test my theory about time zone offsets. First I took a shot with my camera set to my local time zone (US Pacific Standard Time), and then took a second shot set to London time. The time reported by Luminar on both shots was off by +8 hours from what should have been the correct time for the respective time zones. So that debunked my theory; the 8 hour difference seems to be a coincidence. I also tried this with JPEGs rather than RAW files and got similar results.

    All my other software (Windows 10, Lightroom, ON1, DxO, Nikon Capture) give the correct dates.
