I'd thought that maybe the K-3II might have done it all by itself, using the GPS - but no!

GPS uses UTC (GMT) always, no matter where you are in the world, so it doesn't know about daylight savings. Software converts UTC to local time according to how your camera (or SatNav) is set.

I went to reset the time on my K-5 and Panasonic LX-7 on Sunday morning and low and behold they were already set to British Summer Time.

Something tells me I forgot to set them to GMT last October.......

I thought I'd kept all mine permanently on BST, but recently when adding images from two systems to an Elements catalogue I found they didn't tie up - the 2 cameras being ~1 hr apart

It made tagging them considerably more laborious!

That is annoying! So your camera won’t remember the time? Do all settings reset too?

Probably a waste of time, because Windows will probably change the time again if it feels like!

Windows bashing again Algi? You are getting boring.

It has nothing at all to do with Microsoft.

I've nothing against Windows. I just wish it wouldn't change the file times on my pictures. Sometimes I need to know the time they were taken.

I now save a dir listing in each folder with the original (local) times.

It also makes syncing of backups difficult. FAT 32 times are not changed so SD Cards and external USB Drives FAT 32 times should be correct. CD's and DVD's use local times as specified in ISO 9660

Can we have less of the personal attacks.

My wife gets annoyed with me because I think putting the clocks forward and back is and always has been "STUPID" You get the same amount of daylight and darkness whatever the clocks say. All you have to do is get up one hour earlier and go to bed one hour earlier. Why it was ever invented "THOUGHT UP" I'll never know. There is also a school of thought that wants to make it two hours. As for the time of daylight for kids going to school, just change the time they go and come back.
i also didn't think the year 2000 was the beginning of the century but the last year. 2001 was the first year of new century.
Anyway this year was the VERY FIRST TIME my wife and I forgot to put the stupid clocks forward. We did it at approx 11.00 AM in the morning.
STUPID ME. CHEERS VIc.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

If you remember, we tried not changing the clocks a few years ago. Then the government decided to start doing it again.
Doesn't matter what happens really, there will always someone telling us their way is better and the arguments will happen every year!

Personally, I agree with you. There is no sense in changing the clock but It does seem that we are in a minority.
