Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

SOURCE: How do I set a

Most modern Digital Cameras dont actually stamp the image anymore. the data is recorded in "metadata" in the image file. But if you use the ZoomBrowser software that came with your camera to download images you can do the following:

1. Adding a Time Stamp to a Printed Photo:

After selecting Print, check the box(es) "Shooting Date" and/or "Shooting Time."

2. Adding a Time Stamp to the .JPEG Image

Select "Insert Text...," click in the image where you want the stamp placed then click "Import Shooting Date/Time."

SOURCE: Canon Powershot s3 will not turn on or review photos.

It is likely that an internal integrated circuit in the DC/DC board is damaged.

You will need to have your camera reviewed by a qualified technician to have it repaired, since it requires open the camera and evaluate the DC/DC board performance.

Best regards,

SOURCE: Changing that setting was aparently a BAD idea!

Hello: Try updating the firmware for the camers and software. Go to canon and download the firmware to a flash drive and connect your camera and install the latest firmware from canon.

SOURCE: Canon G9 reads E16. What should I do?

E16 Error code (on all canon compacts) means that there is something wrong with the lens mechanism and it cannot contract/extract/focus etc.

Canon suggests removing the battery, and leaving it out for about half an hour. Make sure that the battery is fully charged before reinstalling it.

Also if you have had the camera for over a year, the battery may need to be replaced.

If this does not work, the camera will need to be sent to Canon for repair.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: how do i get date and time on photo after

Hi,

The only way to get the date and time on the pictures now is to use a photo editing program that has a text option. (e.g. Paint, Photoshop, etc.)

What you need to do if you want the date and time is to use the menu options on your camera to select it. Then when you download them the date and time will be on them.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Photo date stamp for Canon PowerShot S3 IS


The camera will not deface your photos by scrawling a string of digits across them. However the date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

How do you BURN the date and time on the photo pixels


Canon S3 IS cannot stamp date and time directly on photos. The date and time data is inserted digitally in the photo files as EXIF data which can be read by many software products. Try loading your photos with Picasa for example and you can see the date and time photo was taken.
