Default Date & time in filename

Does anyone know of a camera which registers the time and date as the filename (or as meta info)?

Most digitals store time and date info not only in the file information, and some record the date as part of the filename, but most modern digitals also store this information in what is called Exif info right in the picture (invisibly in the file). This information can be viewed with an Exif viewer (as long as the picture wasn't edited, or edited with an Exif friendly photo program...many programs don't know about the existance of Exif so they throw away that info).

In the Exif info is also information on which settings were used when the picture was taken like what camera, the mode used, shutter speed, f-stop, focal length, if the flash was used, etc.

Here's a sample of *some* of the Exif info available in a picture taken by a digital camera:

Date/Time 24-Nov-2002 02:31:21
Make Olympus
Model C700UZ
Flash Used No
Focal Length 9.7 mm
Exposure Time 0.50 sec
Aperture f/3.2
ISO Equivalent 100
Metering Mode matrix (5)
JPEG Quality (6)
Exposure Program aperture priority (3)

Try EXIFER (search on Google) a free "postcard ware" product that will rename files according to EXIF info.

The browser facility in Photoshop Elements 2.0 displays the EXIF information, and as a result I've never bothered renaming any files.
