The only way to add the date is during printing utilizing a PictBridge compatible printer. “0″ stars if I could.
Ok, I thought I did a lot of research here, looking at quality of image and quietness of the video zoom, etc. I saw this on some of the best online camera review sites, and of course, the waterproofing and durability. This camera is head and shoulders above the other point and shoot cameras for snorkeling, outdoor shots, video in at least a decently lit location, and even indoors within 5 feet of the camera. My favorite setting continues to be – AUTO! Managed to pick it out with a fine wire and it is still working OK. Not a good design. I found out some water drops got inside even it was properly sealed. Also I have to admit the ocean was a kind of rough that day. I like it very much and got this one as a gift for my fiance. We use them for video half the time.
Don’t know that I would trust the waterproof feature 100% for underwater photography, especially if it has been opened in unfavorable conditions (at the beach) and the “O” ring seal gets contaminated (not an uncommon problem). The warranty won’t cover water intrusion damage in that case.
Probably seven out of ten pictures are terrible. I consider myself pretty knowledgeable in picture taking and I have tried changing all the functions and nothing improves the quality. After some basic research for a camera to be used solely for vacations to tropical locations, I settled on the Olympus Tough 6020 camera. I was sold on the features of the camera, particularly the ability shoot pictures and video under water. I have taken many pictures and have loaded them in my computer. I couldn’t be happier with my new camera! The screen is full of water. I am over it.
The Polaroid takes a much better photo even though it may be the cheapest camera on the market. Do yourself a favor and buy another product. One tech person told me the problem was my iPhoto software and I should contact Apple (I thanked him, and called back to get a more knowledgeable person). After 4 calls and 2 emails to tech support, I still do not know if I need to initialize the camera or not. I have had this camera for only about a week and I love it! The pictures and movies are so clear.
Anyways, I was not happy with my vacation pictures, mainly because it did not produce 100% crystal clear picture quality. It may be a good camera to give to the kids but don’t count on this as your main camera.
I returned it as soon as I got back. camera(s).
