Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Date/time stamp control in Menu won't allow access

I rely on my time/date stamp function on my Canon A530 PowerShot camera for my job. Apparently, yesterday, though I had not turned the function off, my photos revealed no date stamp. When I went to make sure the function was ON, the menu that allows me to access this control would not even highlight and allow me access to choose the ON/OFF option. Its as if the menu is a template of options on other cameras suggesting my camera has no time/date stamp function. Please help.

    Thanks but I dont think its the settings. I keep it on Auto and have checked other shooting modes without success. I do not have the manual. Someone I spoke with at Canon (not a techy) suggested there might be an additional, watch-sized battery that might need replacing. Any additional thoughts? Thanks.

In many cameras these settings depend on the shooting mode. Did you change the shooting mode? If so, return to your normal shooting mode and the function should be available again.

If this doesn't fix your problem I need to know if you have your camera's user manual. If I can find the solution in your user manual I need to know if you can read the steps in your own manual or if I need to provide you a link to read the manual online.

    I have to run so I don't have time to look in the manual for you, but I did find the link where you can download the manual. Download the Advanced User Guide. Look in the manual for the section on setting up the date stamp, and also for the "time/date battery". Good luck!

How do I print out the date on a picture for a Canon A530?


The date stamp will only work when the camera's resolution is set to postcard mode. Press Func/set, scroll down to the bottom, then across to the icon with the clock and mountain. It will say "postcard". Press Func/set again. Then press Menu, scroll down to "Date stamp" and across to select date or date and time, then press menu again

Can not seem to set date to appear on my Canon PowerShot A610 - is it possible? in menu Date Stamp is grayed out


If the current date & time is not set in the root menu, the T&D stamp feature isn't available.

Check your quality settings as well.
My Canon won't allow stamping on portrait-quality prints, or hi-speed settings.

How do I turn off the date and time stamp on my canon powershot sx110?


The menu on the camera controls the date and time stamp. Turn on the menu i camera mode, there are three choices, Camera, Settings and customize. Time stamp should be in the middle menu. Look for time settings and turn it off. All pictures have time and date always. The time/date stamp just makes it visible in the image.
