General Compatibility

Back to Stamp

Stamp works with photo, audio, and video files from any digital camera. The best way to determine when files were originally recorded is to extract dates from camera-generated metadata. Stamp can read metadata from most digital cameras, but not all file formats are standard and some cameras donít store metadata in certain types of file. If Stamp canít read metadata dates from a file, it can use file system dates such as the Created and Modified dates reported by Windows Explorer.

Stamp can extract metadata dates from any JPEG or TIFF image file that contains standard DCF/EXIF metadata. Stamp can also read metadata from several proprietary formats, including CIFF dates in CRW RAW images and RIFF dates in AVI videos and WAV audio files.

Some cameras use file formats that don't support metadata, such as GIF images, MPEG-1 videos, and QuickTime MOV videos. These files can only be timestamped using file system dates.

Specific Cameras and File Formats

Back to Stamp

Stamp has been tested for compatibility with over 120 different cameras and file formats shown in the following table. The list isnít exhaustive Ė even if your particular camera or file format doesnít appear, Stamp will probably be able to use metadata. And even if some files donít contain metadata, you can still Stamp them using file system dates. See the User Guide for more information.
