    Cool USA users: Have you reset your camera clocks?

    Daylight savings time ended in most of the USA on Sunday November 1st. Have you reset the clocks in your cameras? All of the cameras, including the older cameras that you don't use as much any more? Yeah, me neither. But you should....

    Pffftttt... What's the use.. I'll just have to change it back in 4-5 months..

    I wished we could just stay on DST and be done with it. I'd much rather have the hour of sunlight at the end of the day vs the morning, it's far more useful.

    If you are an early riser or like to exercise in the morning, the hour of sunlight is better to have in the AM. It all depends on your schedule.

    My electronics mostly have Daylight Time adjustment built in. That of course all depends on the gov't not changing the start date from year to year, which would make the adjustments vexing.

    Personally, I agree, but I do see a lot of people, especially kids/students who have to go to school early do make use of that extra hour in the morning. I guess it all depends on schedules.

    Also, if we gave up DST, which timezone would be left in?? The real timezone for most places is actually winter time

    We don't have a choice on time zones, it is what it is. I don't think DST does anything but cause a hassle. Won't be long and the days will get shorter and it will be back to near dark when my boys catch the bus and dark at 5 in the afternoon for evening rush commute.

    Arizona does it without problems. Why can't the rest of us?
