Protection of original image data

Customer issues

Since film camera film development takes so long, we want to use a digital camera, but we are worried about tampering.

We take a huge number of photographs on an everyday basis as part of on-site investigations, but we have avoided using a digital camera because of the problem of image tampering. Film development requires time and money so we want to use a digital camera to take photographs that will stand up as evidence.
