Re: How do you imclude a time and date on the image

I don't think you can watermark an image with the date and time with this model, date and time is stored in image properties

Re: How do you imclude a time and date on the image

Sony dropped the Date/Time Stamp feature. Sony said, "The Sony DSC-W50 camera, in addition to other 2006 Cyber-shot camera models, does not have the superimpose function to display the date and time on the image. However, the date and time can be printed on the image from a computer using the bundled software or by connecting the camera to a printer with PictBridge technology."

How to turn off time/date stamp on finepix s1850

Seeing the Date When Previewing images
  • The camera records the date and time of each photo in the metadata attached to each picture. You have the option to see the date and time when when the camera is in "Playback" mode, which allows you to preview your images on the screen. When looking at your pictures, use the "Disp/Back" button to include text with your pictures. The date and time will appear along the bottom of the image.

Printing the Date on Pictures
  • Users can include the time and date on their prints from the "Mode" menu by choosing "Print Order" with the "With Date" option.

How do you set the time and date so that each photo will have it posted

Firstly, set time and date in the camera:
1. Display MENU.
2. Click on each of the tabs until youfind a dropdown with Date/Time on it.
3. Click on this and follow the prompts.
4. On completion press OK. The date and time will be effective from the time you press OK.
I am not aware of any Canon camera that does enable the entering of time/date on all images.
However, it is recorded in the EXIF data that all digital cameras record with every image.
You can use ZoomBrowser - a software program that comes on the CD with Canon Cameras - to write the date/time on selected images. The date and time written will be the actual date and time the image was recorded on your camera i.e. the date and time you took the photo.
With the image open you should be able to find the time/date option.

I want to set my time date setting so it will be recorded on my pictures. Thank you

You will probably find that this not possible. The date and time are recorded in the EXIF information with each photograph all the time but not actually in the picture at all.

I want the date to be captured onto the image when taking a picture. Dated Record

I'm sorry to inform you that the new cameras do not have the superimposing feature to add date and time on images automatically.
This is because many customers do not want that feature..

However, these cameras come with exit technology. The exit technology write the date and time information in the picture as meta data.

You can use an exif compatible software to add date and time on images.

You can also the supplied picture motion browser software to add date and time.

Please click on the below link to view the instructions to add date and time on images using the Picture Motion browser Software:

Thanks for understanding

These instructions explain how to insert the date in images.

  • 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.

How to set camera mode to have time and date on printed photo. it does show time and date when i review the photo.

Refer the page # 77 in the manual of the Camera to superimpose the Date stamp on the images or print the images with Date stamp.


However, because the images shot with the Camera include information on the recording date, you can print images with the date superimposed if the printer or the software can recognize Exif information. For compatibility with the Exif information, consult the manufacturer of the Printer or the software.

If you use a Photo printing service, ask them to superimpose the date on images.

However, using the supplied PMB software, you can print images with date.

Date on pictures taken and movie shooting on canon eos 400d

The EOS Digital Rebel, EOS Digital Rebel XT and EOS Digital Rebel XTi do not support stamping the date and time on the image.

It is not possible to record the date and time as part of the image at the time the picture is taken. However, the date and time is captured in the EXIF information of the image at the point of capture. It is possible to print the image with the date and time via printing software. Please see the documentation for the software package that you use for printing images for the proper procedure.

Print the date on the image/photo

It is not possible to embed the date/time stamp as part of the image itself with the XT. The date/time information is stored as part of the exif information stored in the image at the time of shooting.

However, you do have a couple options for printing images with the date/time stamped onto the image:

If you use the direct print capabilities of the camera when connected to a compatible printer (PictBridge, CP, or DirectPrint are all supported), you are able to enable an option that will print the image with the date/stamp printed on the image. There are also software packages that you can use that will do the same when printing from the computer.

And finally, it is possible, with some photo finishers, to request that they imprint the shooting date/time on the image. This will vary from photo finisher to photo finisher, and the will be some who can't, or won't, do this.
