We recommend that you set the camera clock to the correct time and date before shooting. If you are using multiple cameras, it is particularly important that their clocks agree so that pictures can be correctly sorted by time and date of recording when displayed in ViewNX-i or other software after transfer to a computer.
Clocks can be synchronized via:
Use the [Location data (built-in)] option in the setup menu to set the camera clock to the time (UTC, or Universal Coordinated Time) reported by the navigation satellite system.
1 Enable location data.
A flashing icon will appear in the top control panel while the camera connects to the satellite system. The flashing stops when a connection is established.
2 Select [Yes] for [Set clock from satellite].
3 Choose a time zone.
When [No] is selected for [Location data (built-in)] > [Set clock from satellite] in the setup menu, a master D6 can be used to set the clock on a remote D6 camera connected via an Ethernet cable or an optional WT-6 wireless transmitter. All [Time zone and date] settings in the remote camera's setup menu will be adjusted to match the settings on the master camera.
1 Enable wired LAN/WT functions.
2 Choose the network hardware.
3 Choose the camera roles.
4 Press on the remote camera.
5 Exit synchronization mode.
Press on both cameras to exit synchronization mode and return to the [Network settings] menu.
Repeat Steps 1-5 for each additional camera you want to synchronize.
With the help of the Nikon Transfer 2 component of Nikon's ViewNX-i and Capture NX-D computer software, you can use the computer to set the clocks for cameras such as the D6, D5, and D4S. ViewNX-i and Capture NX-D are available via the Nikon Download Center:
1 Launch Nikon Transfer 2.
After connecting the camera to the computer via USB and starting ViewNX-i or Capture NX-D, click [Import] to launch Nikon Transfer 2.
2 Click [Synchronize].
In the [Preferences] tab, click the [Synchronize] button under [Synchronize camera date and time to computer when camera is connected (supported cameras only)].
A confirmation dialog will be displayed when synchronization is complete. Click [OK] to return to Nikon Transfer 2.
Repeat Steps 1-2 for each additional camera you want to synchronize.
