After my entry into a recent weekly competition, the judge (JAK) noticed that the exif data showed that the photo was taken at 7:45pm instead of the correct time. I have been into the menues to change the time. It is set to London time but I cannot adjust the actual time the camera says it is, Is this possible and how do you do it?
Thanks.

Go into the date menu and adjust the various parameters. The flashing value is the one we can change by using up/down key actions. Move between values with left/right key actions. When set, the final detail is to press the Settings Complete tab.

You are probably just going into the World Time menu, which only sets the zone.
Best regards, John

Given the camera has a built in GPS I can't see why the time setting can't be linked to that to set up automatically, or at least as an option. Other devices manage to do it that way.
