John, it's strange that a so useful feature is now forgotten in 99% of the cameras. As I use the camera in travel abroad or also in Italy. when I need to memorize a place, the name of one square, church, person or any other information I need to have a pen and a piece of paper !! Frankly my old Panasonic TZ7 was much better  : 5 seconds immediately after the shot or 30 seconds in review mode and the most important was that in the PC  the memo record  show exactly the shot in reference . The only alternative is to take a 5/10 seconds video with your voice that explain the  details  of the shot .

Hard life indeed for the travel photographers !

I agree about the lack of a memo recording. If I'm at a landmark, statue, art work or building I will try to find a plaque or description of it and take a picture to remind me of it later. It's a pain to search Google or Wikipedia later to find information about a location, though searching will usually turn up a similar image, sometimes with a description.
