Well I would assume that it just uses your GPS navigation system to look 
up your location, refers to it's local jurisdiction database and sets 
the time accordingly.  :-)

Not that I know of.  The Minolta A1 doesn't, the Minolta 7D doesn't and 
the Canon 5D doesn't.  I would assume lesser cameras of each brand don't 
do it either.  Problem is, even if you know the time zone (which these 
cameras don't) in the US at least, it still requires local knowledge of 
whether a particular political jusisdiction actually abides by daylight 
savings time.
