Question about Canon Powershot G12 10 Megapixel Digital Camera w/ HD Video [4342B001]
Everytime I turn on the camera I need to reset the time and date setting. It does not keep the pictures in the right order or keep the setting once I set it. Any thoughts or ideas?!

Do you have the Camera User Guide~~~It tells you how to set it on p37
I found this on the Camera User Guide
1.press the function/setting button
2.on the left side,there's a column displaying various features, and then you go to select the very last one, and then it will displays more options for you to choose(L,M1,M2,M3,S, postcard,etc), and then "postcard" is the one you should choose.
3.After that, go to "menu", go down to the very bottom on the option list, you will see that the "Date Stamp" is being set "off", go there and choose other options (date/date and time). This is how you can display time on the pictures.

YOU CAN READ ABOUT THIS IN THE WEBSITE I'VE LINKED FOR YOU. HOPE THIS SOLVES YOUR QUESTION, AND IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO:ARCLIGHT1217. IF THIS HELPS, PLEASE REMEMBER TO RATE THIS SOLUTION.

There are two batteries in the camera. One is the big one you charge and the other is a little coin type battery. This coin battery maintains your settings and when it goes your camera forgets things. Same setup on computers and a lot of other electronics. In your camera the battery is a CR1220 worth about $1-$2. It should last about 3-5 years but you never know.
The battery is in a little holder on the left hand side of the camera. Its under the same cover as the usb connector and power plug in. You should be able to pop out the battery holder fairly easily. This is one of those things that if you take the camera to a battery store they will probably do it for you if they aren't busy. If you look at page 137 of your manual you will find the instructions for doing it yourself.

i have the canon a720IS and was having similar problem with my date/time. once i discovered the small cr1220 battery next to the regular battery compartment, i replaced it but the problem still was there.
i looked closely at the cr1220 compartment and took a toothpick and just pulled the metal prongs out a bit, so that they were in better contact with the cr1220 battery. ever since then i've had no problems.
