Edsel Adap added this note
There is an error in this document. It states that the D7000 will automatically spring forward and fall back when the DST setting is set to "on" is incorrect. The actual behavior is, when you turn it on, it adjusts the clock forward. When you turn it off, it adjusts the clock backward. This is a manual process you have to do everytime there is a shift between DST and Standard Time.
