Hi, is there anyone out there who can help me. I'm trying to find out if my Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ20, used for building plant room surveys, has the capability to manually name shots specific to a location. I.e. Lower Plant Room - panel 1.
The GPS location identification is fine but I need to be more specific, currently I write down the location with associated picture number(s).
If this camera doesn't have the capability, can anyone guide me towards any that do, cheers.

Could you not record the location in the cameras metadata?
Some cameras have gps built in which will give location to latitude / longitude accuracy, but not name it. I'm not sure if any camera has that ability. There have been cameras where titles could be added. If I remember correctly Ricoh was the last to do this. Josh is our camera reviewer and knows his way around most current cameras so I'll ask him to comment.
Sad to say but I think a notebook & pencil is the only & best option.
What you can do however is once copied to your computer do a bulk rename of the filenames to include date / location and further enhanced by adding suitable keywords to your images.
I use Lightroom and this is so easy to do
Thanks everyone for your input, very much appreciated also Nick, apologies for my naivety, how would this be done exactly?
One option would be to get a camera that supports entering Copyright information - normally this would be your name, but you could change it to whatever you wanted each time you took a fresh set of photos.
From what OP says looks like he'd have to re-enter that info for every shot and where you do it is bound to be buried in the menus.
Perhaps use the likes of this in combo with a smartphone, tablet or laptop and name them as they come up on the screen.
I just had a quick look online at the operators manual,
Menu, setting the menu,menu type, using GPS function (75), it states "you can select the GPS setting, location and other settings",
might be worth looking at, it looks as if you can change/enter information.
