Question about Sony Handycam HDR-CX260V - camcorder - flash card
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: DAte/Time stamp
I was having the same problem, and was tasked to find a solution at work.
I ended finding talking with a developer who wrote a custom utility that can extract the time/date data from the .MPG (it's hidden in there somewhere) as a special txt file.
Here's a link to that utility: (special version for NTSC footage):
http://dl.free.fr/pNo24JrdB (Special thanks to fnx91 on the videohelp forums)
Then you import that file into a piece of software called DVSubmaker which will convert that data in a special format (.sub) used by certain DVD/Video players to display subtitles.
Here's the best 2 options for playback:
1. Windows Media Player (need Mpeg2 codec) combined with a plugin called Vobsub - Free:)
2. ZoomPlayer (DVD Software) - $60
So in a nutshell, your displaying the original time/date stamp as subtitles on top of the video.
Contact me if you have any troubles.

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.

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.
