Applewhite White House pictures 04/27/2011

I did a more careful count. Note how the time stamps are 4 hours off. The first press conference started at 8:48, the second one, with the President at 9:45 (timeline).

Just for reference

The photographs taken by Susan Walsh. Seems that the time stamps are not that reliable.. Or perhaps Hermitian will insist, she is ‘in on it’ as well…

  1. Oh, the timestamps are fairly reliable. They are simply converted to GMT-8:00 – the PST timezone – just like all of the timestamps on the AP Images site. The original files all have GMT-4:00 timestamps – the EDT timezone.

    Back from two weeks of vacation (prior to which I had a mad scramble to complete a bunch of projects at work – sorry for the half-truth, but for some odd reason my wife doesn’t like it when I let random people on the internet know we’re going to be away from home for long periods of time). I’m still catching up on things.

  2. Good to see you back Kevin. I think NBC has some really good stuff that should be ready soon. Have you noticed our friends Mark Gillar and Electro Magnetic Punk have gone missing? They left poor Hermitian all by himself.

  3. I contacted Customer SUpport for APImages and asked about the timestamp issue. This is the response I received:

    Kevin,
    The only way I know to be sure is to find the photo at APExchange
    and look at the XML document to see what the creation time and
    release time are. For an example imageID 197378679615 show
    10:08 AM when I look at it in APImages and the creation time in
    the XML is 14:08 but it does not specify which time zone.
    What time do you see on that image of Jay Carney today when
    you look at it in APImages?

    ref:_00D709MTE._50070V9hq4:ref

    This confirms that the timestamp at APImages does not correspond to the local timestamp of the photo (and once again, there is a four hour difference for a picture taken in DC). Everything I can find indicates that all times are converted to PST.
