Sony HDR CX260v time stamp

Hello! I have a Sony HDR CX260v. I took a bunch of videos last week, and I had the date/time stamp turned OFF. I would really like to know exactly what time (i.e. 11:32 PM) I recorded each clip. However, I can't find this information on my computer after I've uploaded my footage, and I can't seem to find it on the camera either. Is there anyway for me to retrieve this data? Thanks so much!

SOURCE: We are making a sports

I use this information in photography, its caled EXIF Data, and basicaly is the internal information stamp in the pic (date, camera type, focus used, expsure range, etc, etc).

EXIF data on each movie clip recorded is stored in the accompanying .THM file which is a small JPEG thumbnail file of the first frame of the movie.

Force open the *.thm file with photoshop (or simply make a backup copy and change the extension to *.jpg) and read the EXIF via Ctrl+Alt+Shift+I.

I know that the video files also keep this information and could be vewer and modificated; try to check this software and apply it: topshareware.com/sony-camera-exif/downloads

Additional details could find in this site: www.exif.org

Just one last personal recommendation: ALLWAYS, ALLWAYS keep some backup copy about your files.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Sony HDR-xr 150 is showing data error whenever I play back the recorded videos

Connect the camera with pc and try to check for error with any program like tune up or other online utilities... or if you have data card in it and you can open it in PC than simply copy your recorded videos so that you have a backup first. than you can freely show camera to any service center..

Need to get rid of date stamp on playback of videos...unfortunately videos have already been recorded...is there a way to turn it off on playback?


Well if you decided to date/time stamp on your films, then that is what it has done for you, just go into setting on menu and turn them off again, that is the default mode.

How is the time/date stamp displayed on a copy


The time/date is 'stamped' onto the video during recording. The time/date stamp function can be turned on or off in the setup menu. If it was 'on' during recording, it will be displayed when played back. If it was turned off, it will not be seen on the recording.

I have a Sony HDR-SR11 and the time/date stamp is on all my videos? How can I remove it? The simplest solution would be much appreciated.


I believe that you can select the DISP button on the left side of the camera to make the date and time display disappear from the viewscreen on the camera. I do not know if this will remove it from the footage that you will need to download to your PC or DVD. If you have downloaded it already you may need to select the DISP (for display) button and then re-download the movie footage.
