Date/time stamp on Hero 7 black

[ New ]

It still baffles me that GoPro has still not implemented the user-optional date/time stamp feature that just about every knockoff offers. Why is this such a problem to incorporate this useful feature? I have owned the Hero 4 Black when I first made this suggestion to GoPro Reps in 2015 and repeatedly when the Hero's 6 and 7 were released, with no success. It is very obvious that this suggestion has been ignored.I have used technically inferior knockoffs as a result because of the lack of this feature. Very disappointed with GoPro.

How on earth is this STILL an outstanding feature is beyond me!

 

The simplest solution would be to name the files with the date_created timestamp, and thus no additional metadata would be needed!

 

If Samsung can do this with their phones, why can't GoPro do the same?

 

so frustrated with this!!!!

Found a solution: I eventually had to resort to removing the SD card from the Hero7, then using Robocopy (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17657) to manually copy the files onto my laptop.

 

A PITA, but at least this way the original date_created is kept intact.

 

Seriously, GoPro, why couldn't you just use the datetime of the media as filenames, at least that would be useful.
