I recently traveled abroad (to Beijing, China) and set the World Time -> on my D200 appropriately ("Beijing, HK, Singapore UTC+8").

I just returned and tried using exiftool to rename my files and include the TimeZone (amongst other things) in the filename, via:

exiftool -d %Y-%m/%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S-%Z-%%f.%%e "-filename<datetimeoriginal" .

Unfortunately, this resulted in my local timezone (CDT) being used.

Looking through all the EXIF tags in both the .nef and .jpg files, I don't see anything that looks like a time zone or time zone offset.

So I believe exiftool is just substituting my local timezone because there's no EXIF data for this ... I also used IrfanView on my desktop to examine all the EXIF data and I don't see anything there either.

So where is the time zone name and/or offset stored and what is the EXIF tag name? It *seems* like it isn't, which is disappointing 8-(
