Your camera has a clock and calendar in it. Every time you take a picture the date and time are stored in the resulting image file. This can be really handy when you're editing, not just to find out when you took a picture, but for sorting your images or searching for an image shot on a particular day, but also for geotagging your images. With the right hardware and software, you can add longitude and latitude data to your images in postproduction. But for all of that to work, you have to have the camera's clock set properly. You've probably already set the date and time on your camera, but I want to go over these features because there is some cool things that you should know about for when you're traveling.
Time zone end date is where you set the date and time. It's located in the Setup menu, which is the one with the little wrench on it. I am going to go in here. And you see that I have a few different options that I can change. First, I can pick a time zone. So I am currently set for Pacific time. I just scroll left and right here. Now what's cool is as I change time zone, it will automatically update my clock. So if I live in Pacific time, but I travel to the east coast, I can just go here, hit OK, and now my clock will automatically be moved three hours forward.
When I come home, I can just zip this back over here. So this is a lot easier than having to go ahead and mess with setting the clock. To set the clock, I go down here to the Date and time entry, and I can simply change a value by going up and down and then move back and forth through each of these fields with the left and right buttons. So I've got the date over here and the time right here. Okay there. I can change the date format, depending on what order I like my calendar dates to be in.
And finally, I can turn Daylight Savings time off and on, so whenever you make the switch, just come and switch this on or off and that will automatically adjust your clock for you.
