My phone pictures taken after 29th September (Sailfish 2.0?) are missing Creation timestamps in the metadata. At least exiv2 and DigiKam don't recognise any date/time tags in the metadata. Other metadata, such as Exposure information, shows up correctly.

All pictures taken before the end of September have timestamps in the metadata. I compared the old and new files with a hex editor, and the old ones have timestamps both in Exif as well as in XMP metadata, whereas the new files don't seem to have any timestamps.

I temporarily fixed the missing timestamps with some SQL to add the filesystem creation timestamp + time zone to the metadata in DigiKam's database, but it'd be nice to have an actual Creation timestamp so you know when the picture was taken.
