Using exiftool I can see the metadata of video and photo files taken with my Mavic mini.

The problem is that the photo dates are 1 hour ahead of the time they were actually taken, while the videos are 2 hour behind.

Here's an example of output of exiftool on a photo file (actual taken time was 2020:06:27 20:35:44):
