Hi, after using this cam for more than 2 years, the date timestamp always revert to year 2008.
There should be a button battery to run the cmos. Anyone opened the unit before ?

I stripped the cam and find no button battery that may keep the time so I guess it's dependent on the internal battery BL-05. Replaced this batt, reset and format the memory card and now it seems to be normal.

I had one of these, I am sure it must have been fake tho because the picture was awful. I found out (after I got it) that it was probably a fake because I saw the same looking model online for about 4 times the price (so I am assuming I had a fake of the expensive one).

Got to be careful - not saying yours is a fake tho.
