Time stamp fixed (not metadata) on photos or video ???????????

Hi forum members

How can I save timestamp on photos or video like others action cameras do?

I apreciate a solution for that once others action cameras much less expensive have this function.
Sample pic below

Thanks on advance

i'm afraid its not an option that can be done direct from the camera. You can use a free software program called DashWare to impose telemtry data onto files afterwards, but not sure if time/date is saved within that

Re: Time stamp fixed (not metadata) on photos or video ???????????

Thank you for the tip.

In my current project related with underwater survey I have to take timelapse underwater photos (5 secs) saving timestamp. As I sincronize time in the gopro 5 black with real time on surface gps. So that I can correlate photos (gopro 5 Blck) and real position.
It is a shame Gopro 5 Hero Blck do not allow to do that once much less priced action cameras do.
Really a shame.
