Every time I switch on my camera, I found I need to reset the time from the factory setting, 01/012012 and 00.00
It is particularly frustrating when uploading, as every photo needs to be changed.
Is there anything in the menu I am missing or does it need to sent to a specialist?

Internal battery/capacitor (not sure which Pentax DSLRs use) needs looking at?
SteveH!

Some people call me 'strange'.
I prefer 'unconventional'.
But I'm willing to compromise and accept 'eccentric'.

The screen for setting time and date is not as intuitive as it might be and the "finished" or "settings complete" button needs to be pressed to complete the process. If this isn't done, when the camera is switched off all the settings will be lost.

I have to re-enter when I change the battery - bit of a nuisance.

I know this is a common problem with the Q, but I hadn't heard of it affecting other models.
