In addition to having Date or Date/Time selected on the Date Stamp option in the setup menu, the camera must have the image size set to "Postcard". On the function menu that has L, M1, M2, M3, S, there is an option for "Postcard".

Date stamp is only possible when you set the resolution (picture size) at "Postcard 1600x1200" option, if the date stamp is set to "Date & Time" or "Date" option

Date stamp on photos for Canon SD100 IS


I believe you are referring to the PowerShot SX100 IS, as there is no SD100 IS. And yes, it does have the date stamp option while the image size is set to the postcard mode.

Some functions are not available in all modes.

You have to select Postcard mode to be able to enable the feature (about Page 35). Postcard ratio is 3:2.
If any other ratio is selected (e.g. 3:4) then if it were possible to enable the function it would probably not appear in the printed area.
