Re: date stamp

Not sure, but when each photo is taken, the file is recorded with the date which remains unchanged unless you edit the photo.

For more info, you can download a copy of the user manual from here:-

Its almost at the bottom of the page.

Turn off the date stamp

You didn't give the model number of your Coolpix, so I can only give you general instructions. Explore your camera's menu. Somewhere, you will find an item that will allow you to turn the date stamp on or off and set the current date and possibly the time.

Turn off Timestamp

Are you sure the time stamp is visible in the pictures, when you put them on a computer or when you print them?
I only see the time stamp visible in the play back menu.
To change that, you only have to press the display button, when viewing the pictures you took. Don't be afraid to lose the date and time, because it is in every picture, hidden for sight, but always there if you want to see it.
If this is not what you mean, please let me know, I will search more.

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.

DATE on kodak prints

I'm sorry it's not possible to add the date to the already taken picture on the camera. You could have it added in a software correction software.

In order to have the date and time on future pictures:
Camera Settings
Date Stamp (Icon is an old fashioned stamp)
Choose ON

How to add time and date to a 10M or 6M pictures, seems

Sorry, don't know why Canon designed it this way, but it is only possible in "Postcard" resolution. This is true for all Canon models.

For those wishing to set their camera to include Date/Time stamp on the photos:
As mentioned, the date stamp only works in "Postcard" resolution. Press the "Func Set" button, then scroll down to the bottom to select postcard resolution.
Then press the menu button. Select the "Camera" menu, then scroll down to the the Date Time Stamp selection to turn it on.

Displaying time and date when printing

The date/time cannot be deleted once it is embedded in the image. To turn off the date/time deselect the date/time stamping by following procedure:
These instructions explain how to insert the date in images.
  • The [Date Stamp] cannot be deleted from the image data once it has been recorded because the date is written in as an image.
  • When selecting [Date Stamp] , [Recording Pixels] is set to 1600 x 1200 pixels and the compression (image quality) to [Fine].
  • When the shooting mode is set to <Movie> (g0029623.gif), settings for inserting the date and time cannot be made.
  • The following explanations are provided based on the assumption that the [Shooting Mode] is set to <Program AE> (g0034813.gif).

1. Press the <Power> button on the camera.
2. Press the <FUNC./SET> (g0046915.gif) button.
3. A screen like the one below will appear on the monitor.
Select g0013174.gif [Date Stamp] (g0013171.gif) in the [Recording Pixels] section g0013173.gif.
g0013176.gif Press the <MENU> (g0046624.gif) button.

4. A screen like the one below will appear on the monitor.
g0013173.gif Operate the <directional buttons> left or right to select [Date Stamp] and set it to [Date] or [Date & Time].
g0013174.gif Press the <MENU> (g0046624.gif) button.

5. Press the <FUNC./SET> (g0046915.gif) button.
6. Make sure that the [Date Stamp] is set and the following screen will appear with the icon (g0013164.gif) in the lower-left corner of the screen.
7. When shooting with this setting, the date will be embedded in the image as shown below.
g0013173.gif [Date]
g0013174.gif [Date & Time]
warning: The date, its font and color, and the position where it is displayed cannot be changed. Also, dates and times recorded with [Date Stamp] cannot be deleted.

Cannot turn date stamp on in menu settings.

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 Stamping

I have just discovered how to correct this - you have to have the resolution set to min postcard setting in order to be able to date stamp your pictures for some reason...

TZ 5 not TZ50! Date stamp.

I have the same camera and the only way to do this is to first, Make sure you have set the date and time correctly on your camera. Take a picture or, view picture you want date & time stamped. Press the circular 'Menu/Set' button. Press down arrow to playback mode. Press right arrow on 'text stamp'. Choose whether to apply stamp to single or multiple photos. Press 'Menu/set' to select photo to stamp. Choose which stamps to add. Date, time, age etc.. Press 'Menu/set' again and select 'Yes' in box. The only problem with this is that it will resize your photos to 3m, which can make them grainier if you took them at a higher res. Gillian
