I own a Nikon D800 and a Canon 5DMKIII and am editing wedding photos in Lightroom 4.0. When I load all of my photos from both cameras, all of the Nikon photos show up first even though I’m sorting by capture time. The Nikon uses a 24 hr clock and the Canon uses a standard clock. I just want to see and edit the photos in the order they were taken. Any assistance would be much appreciated!

Multiple posts don't fly here. Why not simply change the time format on one of the two?

Just so I fully understand the issue: Both cameras have their time synced but since Nikon uses a 24 hour clock they show up first?

If its just the clock difference, and I'm assuming you only have the problem after noon when the Nikon starts to read 13:00 and the Canon reads 1:00pm, could you just set the time one both cameras to 1:00am at the start of shooting so you'd have 12 hours of time when the clocks are the same.

Or s this a bigger Nikon/Canon issue?

Thank You, I will do that. Sounds like that will solve the problem. Now, I feel really stupid. Thanks Again. As an art major, it becomes even more apparent that I really need to work on the other side of my brain!!
