Filter catalogue on import date

My Olympus OM-D E-M1 loses track of time every time I replace the battery. If I forget to reset the date and time all photos get tagged as 2013-12-31 11:00pm which is a real pain in the catalog. I know I can sort by date  added but I haven't been able to find the metadata field that shows the actual import date. Is that date anywhere in Lrc? I am using the latest version on MacOSX.

 

If anyone has suggestions for cleaning up this mess I would love them.

You need to send the camera in for service. The internal Clock battery has failed and needs to be replaced.

The images only know what the camera is writing to it.

Get the camera fixed.

 

Import date can vary. Do you manually Copy the images off the memory card to a folder on your drive or use LrC to do the copying to a folder when imported?

 

Folder date and import date, Date Created for the folder and files On Disk would be nearly  the same.

 

You Really need to get your camera fixed or remember to set the date and time everytime you chaneg the battery.

Agreed on servicing the camera. As soon as the hummingbirds leave for the winter this Oly is going in for service. 

I import from the card straight into my catalog. I have set it up so that the images are brought into folders organized by year, month and day. Strangely for these, instead of ending up in a folder tree like this

 

2013

    12
      31

I now have a folder named 2013-12-31 at the same level as the months on my tree
