I have written a few weeks ago that it is very important to set your camera’s data and time correctly. However, some of the cheap cameras make that somewhat difficult. What do I mean? Well if you buy a cheap camera, the chances are that every time you take out the battery (or batteries) you would have to set the date and time again. This will be very annoying especially if your batteries don’t last very long.
Better cameras include a small battery (usually a small battery used for watches) to maintain your camera’s date and time as well as your last settings. While this battery still needs to be changed, it lasts very long time…4 to 5 years. So, consider this fact when buying a new camera…it will save you lots of grief down the line.
