I don't think there is an in-camera way to get date/time onto the photos. For the copyright you could use the Image Overlay feature from the Retouch Menu but it's a manual operation, don't see any way to have this appearing automatically as you shoot.

Serial number sd1400


hi Mark. The number will be on the original packing. If not, then you can upload on of your images taken with the camera to this website which will then display everything you want to know about the camera including serial number, lens used, date, time and any copyright info that may be present.
The website is here: http://regex.info/exif.cgi
Hope this helps.

I would like to have the date print on my pictures,can you help me.The date shows on the camera


Hi kcrdnl264,

The camera records the date/time with the image file but will not imprint it over the image. That's done when you print the picture. Consult your printer manual and/or the manual for the printing software.

1. If you simply want to see the date and time on the screen, press up/down while reviewing your pictures until you get the view you want.

2. If you want the date and time printed on the pictures, that needs to be done in whatever program you use to print. For example, Nikon ViewNX has a "Print Photo Information" check box in its Print dialog.

Note: The camera is not going to damage your pictures by imprinting date and time on any portion of the image. It will record that information (and a lot more), but its priority is on getting the image data.


Hope it helps.

Thank You for using Fixya.

The date and time are stored with every image. Any photo editing program should be able to show you that data (and a LOT more); look for something like "image info" or "EXIF data". If you want the data printed with the picture, refer to the documentation for whatever program you're using to print. Depending on the program and the printer, you may be able to display the date and time on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

How do I turn the date on? I want it to show on the picture.


The D40x won't deface your pictures by scrawling a string of digits across them. However, the date and time (and a lot more) are saved with each picture in what's called the EXIF data. You can see this data in just about any photo viewing/cataloging program, such as Nikon ViewNX2.
Any photo printing program should be able to print some of this data, either on the image itself, in the margins, or on the back, depending on the printer. If you're printing directly from the camera, look at the instructions in the "Printing Photographs" section of the manual (page 57 in my copy), particularly the paragraph bulleted "Time stamp."

Once embedded in the picture, there is no simple way to remove the date mark.

However, there are lots of image editing packages that are able to remove unwanted parts of a picture in a computer. It takes a bit of work, but it is worth learning how to "photoshop" pics, as you can improve them in many ways, even removing unwanted lampposts or parked cars.

How to make date and time stamp on Nikon d40x


The D40x will not timestamp the image itself.
The date and time are contained in the JPG metadata, which you can access when you look at the picture, or can imprint when getting the pictures processed.

Cannot take pictures thru lcd screen on d40x DSLR


The D40x is not capable of Liveview - i.e. looking at the LCD to take a picture. You are mistaken.
If you want Liveview, you need to buy the D3 or D300 cameras. The D40x is an entry-level camera.

How to date/time stamp photos?


No. with digital cameras there is no need to do so, as the date and all other details, such as what lens was used and exposure, etc. is stored in the image file as EXIF data.  If you need a date-stamp for legal purposes, I suggest you submit the original image, preferably RAW, from the camera.
