I think I have the same question kind of..

the metadata of our pictures contain the date that the picture/video is taken as well as other information (for example what was used to take the picture, etc..)

For me I would love to see when pictures/videos were taken. As it is now I can only see when files were last modified (in this case when they were uploaded..)

That data, known as EXIF data in the case of your photos, is embedded in the file itself. The Dropbox website doesn't display that information, but it's still in the files when they sync down to your comptuer. Some of it will be available within your operating system while viewing the details of the file. To see the full EXIF data you'll need to use a program that's capable of displaying that information.
