It’s time to “fall back in the fall.” Daylight Saving Time ends early tomorrow morning, so be sure to set your clocks back one hour before going to bed Saturday night. But don't forget about your cameras!
Unlike your computers, tablets, and smartphones, the clock in your camera doesn’t typically do the “Spring forward, Fall back” routine required to keep its clock accurate throughout the year. So if you don’t go in and manually change the time and date on you camera, every picture you take will be stamped with incorrect date & time stamps.
While it’s not the end of the world if your photos show a time that’s an hour off, having your clock accurate is always a good thing. Knowing the exact time an image was taken can help you if you want to replicate the exact atmospheric conditions in a landscape shot at a later time, for example. Having accurate timestamps is especially important if you’re doing any kind of geo-tagging of your images using a GPS tracker to record a GPS track file and apply it to your DSLR photos in Lightroom or other photo cataloging software.
So take 5 mins before you go to bed and show your camera so love! Happy Shooting!
