This is probably an old topic.
I find it mystifying that inexpensive video “traffic recorders” (1980×1080 HD) offer (VIDEO) time stamping (date, hour, min, secs)….whereas modern video cameras don’t. (Tape based cams of 20-30 years ago did).
I use a traffic recorder (150 degree wide angle) for law enforcement which is fine for close proximity, but useless for covert stand-off work. My Canon SX40HS is superb for long range capture (300m)….but only time stamps photos….even though it shoots HD video.
My question to all the gurus: which video cameras DO offer time stamping ? I am not looking for elapsed time, simply current date & time (including seconds).
