I won't be resetting mine, but am currious about how many folks do.

I may be anal that way, but I like to have all my clocks reading the same. It seems I usually forget one for a few days, but they eventually get done.

I guess I won't. Now that you mention it, I realize that I never changed it last year. I'll probably manage without it. To tell the truth, I don't pay much attention to it anyway.

Never really thought about it, but I probably will. (If I remember) :roll:

I set it when I first got the cameras, not altered it since.
All the electronic ones either fend for themselves or flash 12:00.

Have enough real clocks to fiddle with since I have a small collection of them.

I didn't even think about changing the clock on my old camera until one time when I was taking a photo as proof of something. The date/time information was important, and it wasn't until later that I realized it was set on the wrong time. I've been much better about changing the time since then.

When I plugged in my 30d, the computer said it had the wrong time and would I like to change it, I pressed yes and the computer changed the time, so I suppose it may do the same with daylight savings. The only problems you will have will be trying to photograph cows, they may get confused by the different times you have your cameras set to.

I won't be resetting mine, for a very good reason: we don' t have daylight savings time here in Japan!

I've never even thought about it to be honest. The only time I've ever really noticed was when I was looking at some old pictures tha I took of my friends in a bar, and noticed they were apparently taken half an hour after the place closed.
