K200d shot time reported by exif 30 minutes behind

I've just noticed that the shot time reported by the exif data is 30 minutes behind. I've set my camera time to Adelaide (I live in Darwin) +9.5 GMT and DST is not selected, but when I take a shot, the exif reports the time 30 min behind.

Has anyone else noticed this? i've only noticed this after 2 years.

The camera will show you the current time on the time adjustment page. If that isn't correct, either enable DST, or adjust the internal clock as needed.

Proof positive that Pentax cameras are "dog slow".
Could not help it.

Slightly OT but to do with time recording, if you take a 30 minute exposure, the time recorded on my K20D will be when the shutter first opened, not when it closed. Not sure if they changed this for the K7.
