Time/Date Stamp Problem

I can't seem to get the time/date stamp to stay when I set it. I prefer the M/D/Y and have set it multiple times from the setup screen, but it resets to Y/M/D and the date doesn't show up on the picture which I want it to do. Any tips?

I'm sure you have done this already, but you have make sure you press the OK button after all the fields are set. Something else, make sure the batteries are new and charged.

For printing the date/time...

  1. Rotate the mode dial to A, P, SCENE, Tv, Av or M and turn on your ViviCam 8400.
  2. Press the menu button, then use "right" to select Mode 3 menu.
  3. Press "down" to select the Daet Imprint and change it to ON.
  4. Press the OK button to make this permanent.
  5. Then press the menu button again to exit the menu.
After this, all pictures will print with the date, and cannot be removed.

Hope this helps, if it does, please choose FixYa!

How do I turn off the date and time stamp on my canon powershot sx110?


The menu on the camera controls the date and time stamp. Turn on the menu i camera mode, there are three choices, Camera, Settings and customize. Time stamp should be in the middle menu. Look for time settings and turn it off. All pictures have time and date always. The time/date stamp just makes it visible in the image.

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.

These instructions explain how to insert the date in images.

Time and date display


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

Canon SD 1000 time and date stamp on downloaded photo


Set the resolution to PostageCard (1600x1200).
Many of these cameras have only ONE RESOLUTION setting which allows you to have a date/ date and time stamp on the file, which will print on the viewed or printed photo.

How to do it:
Turn the camera on M mode.
Use the func. set.
go down the menu to the resolution settings. (on the bottom of menu).
Pick only the postagecard (1600x1200) setting.

I also was like you, and had an awful time with a camera I was fixing. I then looked it up on the Net and found an online user manual for the Canon SD 500, which should be basically the same.
