On a general level, apart from which date digikam is showing you,
there are 3 possible DateTime values for digital images.

>From page 37 of the Metadata Working Group Guidelines:

- Date/time original specifies when a photo was taken.

- Date/time digitized specifies when an image was digitized.

- Date/time modified specifies when a file was modified by the user.
