Taking photos in RAW (DNG) with LR mobile for Android

When I take a photo with my Samsung Galaxy S6 in RAW Format the recording date written in EXIF data of the DNG file always is 02/08/2016. In JPEG format, the date is written correctly in the EXIF data. So I think that this is a bug and not a wrong attitude of my mobile phone.

It seems that the Android Camera2 API has a bug and it writes the wrong Timestamp to the EXIF tag:

Yes, you are right. Unfortunately not seem Google and Samsung to be interested in a troubleshooting service

I wrote a simple Perl script to fix the images whe they are on the disk: https://github.com/marcocucinato/Android-DNG-fixdate .  It adds a manual step in the workflow, but it is better than manually changing the Capture Date.
