    Since almost all states, except maybe Arizona, here have just had to move our clocks forward one hour...don't forget to check your camera's time settings.

    I hadn't thought about it at all, but had to go in and check something else and realized my E-P2 was an hour off. Just think of the historical significance!:eek::biggrin:

    Thanks for your thread.
    In Europe summer time starts at March 28 and ends at October 31.
    When does it end in the US?

    If I want to know when I took a picture a year from now and I get the right day it's close enough.

    Hey; I learned that the day I retired. :yahoo:
