For those of you who missed the homepage announcement, this is just a friendly reminder that today, tomorrow, and Sunday are all World Pentax Days!

Go out and shoot with your friends, then upload your best photos to the event gallery.

Hello, I took some photos today and tried to post them for WPD. It said the date was not within the guidelines, although I took the photos today, and the date on my camera is set correctly. Do you know what the problem might be? Thanks.

Adam, I just tried to upload a photo taken a few minutes ago, and the gallery loader will not accept it as the EXIF date format is set for non USA i.e. 12/07/14. Is it possible to make this adjustment so non-US forum members can contribute?

The system was set to only allow photos from 2013! Eek. Your uploads should now go through

Had the same problem after Adam fixed the first problem. I am hoping that he fixes this problem also.

Thanks Adam, the update went through, but where it went remains a mystery - it isn't showing in the gallery for the day

The upload problem was just recently fixed, so I would try again. I'm not seeing anything wrong with the system at this time.

I did that and got the date error again (quietly sobbing to himself now......)

'Photos for this World Pentax Day event must be taken on Friday July 11th, Saturday July 12th, or Sunday July 13th, 2014. Please check your photo's EXIF'

Can you try uploading to the misc category? That'll allow me to take a look at the exif and see if the date is as it should be.

Loaded as requested. If possible, could you transfer it to the World Pentax Day Gallery.

Thanks

I've gone ahead and moved it for you. Also, I was able to identify another problem, so now all uploads should go through

I took my original Asahi Pentax out today and ran a couple rolls of film though it. Tomorrow, I'll be taking my K-3 wine tasting.
