Data back for PZ-1P?

I think I'm going to miss the exposure data from the MZ-S I borrowed, but I'm looking forward to getting back into film. I don't like date/time imprinting, but I'd like the rest. Thanks!

Edit: It looks like the data back for the PZ-1P might not print exposure data. Do you guys record metadata for your shots? If so, what do you use to organise it?

Back in the day I used to carry a notebook in my camera bag to record some very simple exposure data. Always date and lens and depending on what I shot the shutter and aperture. Negatives were always stored in archive file sheets with the note sheet attached. Today I still do the same thing but instead I just use a spreadsheet on my phone to keep track of the data.

The data back on the PZ-1 only records date and time. I'd have to check mine as I haven't used the data backs in quite a few years, but I know that the date range on my LX data back is limited and I don't believe it reaches today's date, the PZ-1 back may be the same.

I was surprised that the data back Fb on my 1989 SFX shows the current year. I haven't checked how far it will go.
