For those who had to change their clocks this morning going off Daylight saving time, did you remember to also change the time in your camera.

Naw, I don't even bother. It's never been an issue, except for that one time when I was late for work because I was looking at the time on my camera, and then got fired for showing up to work late.

I keep my cameras to GMT - may as well have one device that works on proper time.

I hate DST... Why not just leave it so we have more light later in the day. Now by the time I get home from work it is dark. So annoying!

Ummm, Steve, don't you mean you hate standard time?

DST gives us an extra hour of light in the evening.

Anyway, I remember one year in the '70s when we had DST for the entire year (to save energy because of the oil embargo). Not so good - in January it was dark in the morning - kids going to school in the dark caused a lot of concern among parents.

Yep. Very few people truly understand daylight saving time.

It exists because we're too lazy to get up early enough to enjoy the morning sunshine in the summer.

I believe that was officially referred to as "Carter Time." The bureaucrats couldn't figure out that DST only works when you actually have some daylight to save.
