Date and Time are Wrong on Photos

I have a new 70D, only used a few times. Took some photos today and I notice that yesterday's date is on the EXIF info showing for the photo in my editing software.   I checked in the Menu tho and the correct date and time are showing.  How do I fix this????

You can fix it in your software on your PC, it will usually let you change the EXIF date for a photo.


Do you have the AM/PM messed up? I have done that sometimes.

Camera uses UTC time, 24 hour time. For example 3PM would be 1500 hours.
