Setting Date/Time on Polaroid a530

When new, my camera started stamping pics with the date 1/1/2000. The date increments each day like it should, but I have found nowhere that you can set the correct date. All my images are in the year 2000! The manual says nothing about dates, and there is no menu setting I can find for it. Any help? Thanks!

I contacted Polaroid help desk and they were clueless. They said there is no way to set the time after messing around with the camera for 10 minutes.

When you pull the photos off the camera it does record a date and time. I believe they forgot to add the option in the setup menu so you cannot get to it. I asked for them to send me a differant camera and the help desk rep laughed.

I guess thats what I get for buying a cheap camera.

How do I set the time date stamp


• Setting Date & Time Use the Date & Time function to set the date and time of your camera. This function is useful attaching date stamps on captured images. Your camera uses a 12-hour time format. 1. Press the navigation controls to adjust date and time value. By holding down the up arrow or down arrow keys, the numeric values change continuously. 2. Press OK to apply changes.

How do I print out the date on a picture for a Canon A530?


The date stamp will only work when the camera's resolution is set to postcard mode. Press Func/set, scroll down to the bottom, then across to the icon with the clock and mountain. It will say "postcard". Press Func/set again. Then press Menu, scroll down to "Date stamp" and across to select date or date and time, then press menu again

Hi i need to put the date/time stamp onto my footage. So i can present it in court..please help Adam


Google BatchPhoto and download the software. The program has a free 30 day trial and it'll add the date/time stamp to your photos. BatchPhoto can read the original date/time when the photos were taken from the embedded EXIF data. It can add the date/time on dozens of pics very fast and in one operation. Also it offers extensive options for setting the timestamp: the font, color and even the text's transparency can be adjusted, also the date format as well as placement of the stamp are fully customizable.

Date/time stamp control in Menu won't allow access


In many cameras these settings depend on the shooting mode. Did you change the shooting mode? If so, return to your normal shooting mode and the function should be available again.

If this doesn't fix your problem I need to know if you have your camera's user manual. If I can find the solution in your user manual I need to know if you can read the steps in your own manual or if I need to provide you a link to read the manual online.
