When flying with a camera that is mounted manually on your drone we highly advise that you set the date to the proper date before flying the camera before every flight. Since the cameras that maintain their date/time drift while offline, we need to know the date you flew in order to properly associate the photos with a telemetry log that exists on the computer when you are syncing the clocks.
However, if you're using FarmLens Uploader we do have a way to get around the issue of forgetting to set the date of the camera before flight, for example, the following image shows that we forgot to set the date, but did take a picture of the clock:
In this case, we still want to type the time we see in the photo ("10:30:00") in the red box, but we'd also want the date to be corrected (as you can see it's reporting 01/21/2015 [January 1st, 2015], but we flew 03/04/2017 [March 4th, 2017]). To fix this, you just need to enter a space and the correct date in the format of YEAR-MONTH-DAY. So in our case the entire text box would read:
The corrected flight time should then read "11:53:09 03/04/2017", which is when our telemetry log is reporting and we are able to proceed to the next step.
