    Friendly reminder to those of us affected by the time change.
    Don't forget to set your clocks, gps units, VCR, television, camera,
    etc. back an hour!

    Cheers

  2. Why not do what I do, and leave your camera set to UTC. No need to change
    then, no need to worry about time zone changes when travelling, no need to
    worry if it was daylight saving time in the country you were visiting when
    you were visitng.....

    BTW: GPS should /not/ need adjusting, my VCR is automatic, my radio clocks
    need no adjustment. Just the microwave, heating, watch and cooker!

    Cheers,
    David

    A pleasant surprise for me.
    My Pentax *istD automatically changes the time.
    Just leave the setting on "world time" and enter in the city closest to you.

    David:
    Obviously my sarcasm didn't come through. In addition to being a
    reminder for those who need it, it was also supposed to be a
    commentary on the stupid number of things that have clocks and how
    even now in 2004 many of them don't have an "auto adjust" setting.
    Next time I'll try harder <grin>.

    Your GPS unit should auto calibrate to the time, like my computer did.

    I'll give you it may be a better solution for some, but not all. There is
    still the issue of how the date on the file is stamped and then
    subsequently on the various computer file systems. If one always goes by
    the exif info, then there is no problem. Files dates reported on your PC
    are another issue.

    Also, a good time to replace batteries in smoke and CO2 detectors in the
    house as well.

    Oops!

    Actually, I was little worried because my Nikon 8400 /does/ have a time
    zone setting, and the /last/ thing I want to happen is for the camera to
    change its taking time!

    Speak with you next spring!

    Cheers,
    David

    I take my pictures timestamped in UTC, both the EXIF and the file
    date/time. I use Picture Information Extractor (PIE) to rename the files
    in UTC yyyy-mm-dd-hhnn-ss format.

    - with NTFS and CDFS, the file date/time is held in UTC internally, and
    displayed according to the local-UTC offset. The displayed date/time will
    vary according to time zone and summer/winter offset.

    - with FAT the date/time is just held as "clock" time.

    Cheers,
    David
