Allow bulk editing of capture time.  You have 3 options in LR to edit the capture time, one being for those occasions when we have not set the local time correctly, missing out or adding DST incorrectly.  This incremental change to the capture time ought to be available as a bulk change as it's a simple change.  Having to change each individual image using  6 mouse clicks every time is incredible slow and very frustrating.  Nor are there any keyboard short cuts to ease the process.

You can already bulk change them. Which bit are you getting stuck on?  Perhaps this will help: The time on my camera was incorrect—how do I change the capture time?

Must have been doing something wrong as it wouldn't work for me yesterday.  Got about 1600 images which didn't have DST added, so bulk correction a real boon. Showed up because second body was correctly set up and the image sequences when sorted by capture time didn't sit right.
