2011 Resetting The Clock to Standard Time
Today is Sunday 6-Nov-2011. In Canada and the US, the first weekend after Halloween is when we go back to the “standard time.” All my computers, cell phones and telephones changed the time by themselves. My home appliances and my car do not reset the time by themselves, I had to change them manually.
But this blog is not about cars or phones… This blog is about photography. There's no camera, that I know of, that changes the clock back and forth automatically for the daylight saving time and the standard time.
Why is it important to have the clock properly set on your camera?
- Wrong information. The data is incorrect.
- Since I do not have frame counters like on the Nikon D3 serie or the Canon 1D serie, I use the clock to identify photos and people's names, especially at events.
- It's also a good time to sync up the clocks on multiple cameras.
- When selecting photos in Lightroom by metadata dates, the dates will be wrong if the photos are done late at night or early morning.
