LX3 cannot time stamp the pictures when you are in RECORDING mode.
It is done when you are in PLAYBACK mode, after the pictures are recorded.
The function is [TEXT STAMP].
See page 143 of the below manual.
"You can stamp the recording date/time, age, travel date or title
onto the recorded pictures. It is suitable for regular size printing.
(Pictures with a picture size larger than [3m] will be resized when
stamping the date etc. on them.)"
The downside is that it will resize your larger pictures and save another
set of pictures with time stamp.
No experience with Kodak PnS... so can't comment. Maybe they thought that this feature is not so important as every photo have a EXIF (PnS) on it and it is fairly easy for most to include it if they need it.
But I guess they forgot that even with a digital camera, many people may not know or use the computer for any PP on their photos... :think:
But because most of my pictures are either landscape, portrait or snapshots, the zoom is not really much a concern for me when I decided to get the LX3:bsmilie:
I guess you must have remembered me Anson. :bsmilie: I almost wanted to get the FZ28 but now I settled for the LX3. If the G1 had video or the GH1 is available, things would have gotten complicated since my LX3 isn't as small after my lens adapter and filter.

I think you can't see the date imprinted on the photo itself unless you do it manually on the camera and it downsizes the photo when it stamps the date (as mentioned by the other posters).
If you're talking about knowing the date that the photo was taken after downloading it to the comp, all OSes can do it fairly easily (read basic EXIF data) without using any programs. At least I know OSX and XP both can.
I guess there is value stamping dates on the photo itself if you're printing it out and sticking into albums Or just label on the album itself?
