I can't seem to set the Date/Time/Zone on my D750. According to the menu on the camera it's right but when I take a picture it's really off by a lot?

Any ideas why?

So I guess it goes by military time...ugh

I think problem solved. Other than the fact that I don't like military time...ugh

It's only "military time" is the US. It's 24 hour time everywhere else. I remember when I was in Germany in the 80's seeing store hours listed in the windows that way. Think of it as the metric system for time. But I also like the metric system.

I find it makes a lot more sense, and anytime I get a clock or device that can display 24 hours, I set it that way. It drives my wife nuts and has taken her years to grasp it. I don't get what's so hard about it.

Any hour bigger than 12, subtract 12 and you're "translated". Easy-Peasey. And ZERO confusion when you wake up from a coma wondering if it's 6 AM or PM :-)

I finally retired in September, and truth be told, I no longer care what time it is as it really has no bearing on what I will do next.

There was one place I worked in the mid 90s where it drove the girls in the office nuts when they would transcribe my service tickets and they didn't know what 1530 or 1315 meant. I was asked to use am/pm and that drove ME nuts.

You guys have it easy... where I work we deal in 3 time zones... our phone system records all calls in 24 hour format for Universal Coordinated Time (UTC or GMT or Zulu depending on your age if you deal with this), the call record details are stored in the database in Eastern time because that is where our phone systems are (our parent company is in Cleveland and Winston Salem) and then we do reports and pull call records based on Pacific time because that is where the office is that I work. So when someone says they need calls pulled for QA or compliance or there was a problem with calls and I'm given a time to check on I have to ask which time zone are they wanting checked. When I pull reports out of the call database I have to label everything UTC, EST/EDT and PST/PDT so people know what time zone it is. And yes, a lot of people that read the reports also want a column in AM/PM. On top of that, a call taken in the afternoon could be stored with tomorrows date because it's past midnight UTC time. It makes it fun when someone asks for all of the calls for a 24 hour period because some of those calls could really be from the previous day and some could be missed because they are showing up with tomorrows date. :)

I've been using the 24 hour format for so many years that I automatically convert in my head when I see a time, no matter what format it is.

I haven't a clue what these time issues are about. In South Africa we don't even have daylight saving.
