How to set the Date & Time for photos and videos taken with a Quadcopter such as the Dromida Kodo

To get the correct timestamps, you can save a file to the SD card named time.txt with the date in the format “yyyy/mm/dd hh.mm.ss”

Use notepad or another text editor to create the file, and name it time.txt with the timestamp all on one line, and then a newline (press ‘enter’) after it. This will be used to set the camera’s clock as long as it has power.

Here are some examples for different timezones – and you can also download files with the current timestamps:

Eastern (EDT) - download current time.txt for Eastern (EDT)
2017/04/23 13.53.24
Central (CDT) - download current time.txt for Central (CDT)
