Time and Date


Open the Time and Date dialog to set the camera's date, time, time zone and time server settings.

The operating system’s clock is synchronized with the real-time clock at boot time and periodically every 6 hours. To avoid differences caused by minor offsets of the real-time clock, the camera can synchronize the real-time clock when booting and periodically every 6 hours using an external time server.

Note: The camera must be able to access the time server over the local network.
