Hmm. I like to keep the camera's date setting current, but rarely ever look at 
the time my cameras are set to. 
I order things in LR by frame number, not by time, and only very very 
occasionally use more than one camera at a time, so it's rarely an issue. 

If I do have two cameras output (iphone and m10m, or m10m and m10r), since I 
don't shoot all that many frames in a session on average, I can usually 
integrate all the photos together in the right sequence and then rename them 
into an ordinal sequence, if that seems important. I can also set the capture 
times into an ordinal range that way. 

Most of the time, I don't worry about time and date very much. Once I've 
rendered my photos and put together a set to display, whatever order they are 
in is what I choose, not what the frame numbering or the time/date sequence 

Life is sure simpler in the Polaroid instant film world where a pack of film 
has only eight exposures and I can remember exactly what sequence I shot them 
in… :D
