    how many of you shot a wedding with 2 cameras, taking hundreds of photos, only to get home and realize that the camera dates were off! i just got a 30D as my main cam and the date was off by a month. the 20D was fine. now after i edit in raw, i export to tiff to do cropping and dodge and burn, etc. then i export to jpg and sort by DATE PHOTO TAKEN ON.....BUT GUESS WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!! what did you do! i don't think there is anything i can do. i don't have the time to go through 1400 photos and rename them to put them in order!! i don't think there is anything i can do.

    thanks,
    steve

    How about a batch renamer, for Macs or for Windows?
    The dates may be off, but the sequence shouldn't be.

    The joy of digital shooting at weddings is that we can take 1400 images from the day and pick the best ones later. :D

    Irfanview is a good batch renaming program.

    On this one, you may have to sort with something besides the date/time. The file numbers are still sequential so it's not as if they are random.

    Live and learn...
    I'm betting that you will never forget to synchronize your cameras again :D

    mike,

    i will never forget to sync them again. in fact, i check everytime before i shoot now, just because. 15 seconds of syncing could have saved me HOURS in time! i was beyond enraged. it just slipped my mind. what made it worse is that it was 2 days off AND 1 hour off! i did find a program to change the info in the shots....but it only helped to correct the day. now i'm left with 300 photos or so where the hour was 1 hour off. whatever. if only the hour was the same i would have had it made but the camera was setup for west coast time when i ordered it. anyway, that issue has long been behind me and won't happen again!

    on a side note.....we shouldn't be taking that many photos at a wedding? why not? better to have way too many. not sure why you wouldn't take a lot! take tons and see what sticks later. i average about 100 an hour...900 for a wedding might mean 650-700 final shots...maybe even 600. i keep the best ones and they never see the rest.
