K20d clock time?

Just This could be a matter of reviewing the manual, but I'm not sure it's there. I just noticed today that I'd either forgotten to adjust my camera for daylight savings time this spring, or the camera isn't up on some adjustments to daylight savings... (which has been shifted a bit recently here. ) Is it just a matter of remembering to update, or is something happening automatically?

How long has it been since you've used your camera?

Not sure about this, but does your city's time zone selection permit you to specify daylight savings in the K20D time menu?

I'm not sure, but i'm guessing if your time zone is correct the hour will be added or subtracted when the time comes.

I have not had my K20 long enough to be 100% positive.........does anyone else know for sure?

Couple hours? The camera's with me daily. I admit I'm not in the habit of there being a clock in one, never mind checking the time there (Fact is, I forgot the cell phone yesterday and that's why I noticed 'Hrm, this isn't right: ) my little Lumix (Which hasn't had a firmware update since before they extended daylight savings) would correct for the older scheme, and that caused me some confusion once under similar circumstances..

So I was wondering if the camera tries to correct:

I found the issue, though, trying to answer Ash's question: I was set for my timezone, but the DST option was simply not enabled.

So you want to go to setup, and where it says 'World time' check the DST box if that applies. Now it seems to be correct.
