Question about Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Date and time

When I turn on the camera, it wants me to add the date and time, which I do and then the camera works fine as long as I leave it on. When I turn it off and then back on, it asks me for the date and time again. Is there some sort of internal battery that needs to be replaced?

Pentax k2000 won't save time and date


In most modern cameras is a little rechargeable battery, that keeps the clock ticking. If your camera was a long time without power, perhaps this battery has died. I would buy a new set NiMH rechargeable or recyclo batteries, because they have a bit less capacity, but can hold power for as long as a year. Then charge them and leave the rechargeable batteries in your camera. Keep your fingers crossed, perhaps the little clock battery will be revived?

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.
