So just took some photos on my phone and viewed them on my PC.

 

Photos look good but hovering the mouse over the photos shows the date and time to be approx 12 hours in front of what it should be.

 

When I actually download and save the photos the time corrects itself ?

 

 

 

Bizzare is there a fix and does it matter or not ?

Assuming your region/timezone is set correctly on the phone? Then the timestamp may be pre-corrected UTC.

What gzt is saying I'd that it appears to be due to time zone weirdness.

UTC is universal coordinated time, and is a modern replacement for GMT. The abbreviation comes from the French version of the name. It's effectively a completely neutral and unchanging time zone, which makes it ideal for passing dates around in computer systems.

Conversion to the user's time zone is supposed to happen as a last step before display. However, it seems that the software on your phone is doing this before sending the photo list to the computer, and your computer is doing the conversion again. We're either 12 or 13 hours ahead of UTC (depending on daylight saving), which explains the difference you're seeing.

The problem goes away when you copy the files to the computer because the computer is able to read the date from the files themselves, and only applies a single time zone conversion.

I don't think there's much you can do here. The phone's reporting the wrong date, and they're's no easy way to modify the software involved.

Yeah must be something like that. There are a range of manual steps and things you could do to confirm.
