what Time Zone is used for the screenshot files ?




I took this screenshot at circa 14:06 (the time on my K3) .

The resulting GIF file in the H:\documents folder has these time-properties :
Created: 12:06:05
Modified: 12:06:04
Accessed: [time is not mentioned]

My K3 arrived with the Time Zone set to GMT+02:00 (which is correct: GMT+01:00 plus 1 hour SummerTime) .
So, it looks like the K3 uses GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) for the time-properties of the screenshot files .

Is that correct ?
Perhaps only for European Kindle owners ?

*NIX based systems generally have the RTC set to UTC which is pretty much GMT for most purposes.
