Just updated digikam from 7.1.0 to 7.3.0. Try to import new images previously copied to hard drive. All images appear with "created" date corresponding to the file creation not the date the image was taken. However, the date appears correct in:
-Date and Time (digitized)
-Date and Time (original)
-Date and Time Original
AND not correct in:
-FileCreateDate (it displays date file was copied to hard drive)
-FileModifyDate (it displays date image was taken)
Images are attributed a creation date that corresponds to the date the file was copied.
Images are attributed the correct creation date, as it was happening just before upgrade.
Windows: 10 Pro
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.80.0
Qt Version: 5.15.2
Activate reading of the file metadata in the digiKam settings under camera.

Thanks Maik. That actually solves the problem (albeit way slower) however I wonder why it appeared. Never had that issue with digikam 7.1.0.
The problem was definitely there in digiKam-7.1.0, it's not a new one.
I plan to do the post-processing in a separate thread after importing the images into the DB. So that these and other problems in the import tool can be resolved. Let's see, maybe I'll find time for it over the holidays.
Alright, I will take your word of course.
Then... my digikam configuration settings were changed due to the upgrade? Thats the reason?
