The photos I have taken with my digital camera had all wrong date stamps since my camera had no correct time setting.

 

So now I would like to correct that. Is it possible ?

    Select the photo(s) where you want the date changed and then select Photos > Change Date and Time from the iPhoto menu bar, enter the desired values and click Apply.

     

    Since I have a german language version the menu item naming might be different, however it is the first item in the Photos menu.

     

    Hope that helps!

    To correct camera settings select the photos and use the "adjust time and date" command. This will correct the time/date for all selected photos by the same amount

    OK thanks. I called Apple support and they said it is not possible. But I did not beleive them so I asked the Forum.

    Don't forget to reset the date in the camera so you don't have to go thru this workaround again.

    I am now using only my iPhone which always is automatically set to correct time.

    Any camera that needs to be set manually is always a nuisance

    My iPhone is more usefull as a camera than the expensive ones, because it is always available, quick to take shots, and easy to use

    I do not need complicated and expensive cameras nowadays.

    I agree.  Until I got my wife's handmedown iPhone 4 I used my small Panosonic camera which was very good and could be put into my shirt pocket.  But then I had to also carry a cell phone.

     

    The only problem I have with iPhones is that it's difficult to take pictures in the landscape mode which is the best orientation if you plan on making slideshows, etc.  That's my prteferred orientation and it takes some getting used to holding the phone the right way for it and keep you fingers out of the pictures.

    iPhone has some drawbacks as a camera.
    My observation:   no optical zoom,  no rapid shutter  (you get blurred photos very often, I trash more than half of my photos)
