"Camera has NO DATE/TIME STAMP feature or capability!"1.0 starson by MisterMingo
Pros: Good alround mega zoom features and picture quality in a reasonably priced camera with increased AA battery capacity.
Cons: This camera has NO DATE/TIME STAMP feature or capability. This glaring defect makes this camera useless for my applications.
Summary: I purchased this camera to upgrade from my Cannon A560 because I needed more zoom and battery capacity.
The camera features are very good BUT the SX10 is DOES NOT have the capability to put a DATE/TIME STAMP on the pictures.
I just got off the phone with Cannon Tech Support at 1-800-385-2155 and the Tech Support person assured me there is NO WAY to make this camera mark a date/time stamp on the pictures. Not only this but the Cannon SX1 is does not have date/time stamp capability either! I hope the tech support person was wrong but it appears not.
I cannot believe cannon would produce a camera in this class without date/time stamp capability! The Date/Time stamp is a very common if not universal and standard feature on nearly ALL digital cameras.
This is tantamount to manufacturing automobiles with no seatbelts or windshield wipers!!!!!
I was better off with my Cannon A560. Cannon used to make the best line of camera's on the market in my opinion........ apparently Cannon is taking notes from American manufactures and throwing quality and common sense out the window.
A camera with NO DATE/TIME stamp feature that is selectible is of NO USE to me. I am EXTREMELY disappointed in this camera.
