    Why does my camera reset its date/time whenever I change batteries? It's give me a hard time putting my footage in chronological order.

    How long is the battery out before it's replaced?

    If the battery runs out completely, date & time will be reset.
    If the battery is replaced while still has some power, if you just take some seconds to replace it, the date & time will be kept.
    Try it with a charged battery!

    I agree.

    AFAIK, there is no "keeper" battery to hold on to time of day, etc. There is probably a capacitor supplying enough power to keep the power going until a new battery goes in. The capacitor isn't going to last very long. Leave the battery for, say, the duration of an external charge, and expect the TOD has reset.
