SOURCE: Date/Time Stamp option is greyed-out

An online review says the date stamp only works in the "postcard" image format. http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/canon/powershot_sd850-review/

SOURCE: date stamp

To get the date/time to be on your photos while taking the picture so you don't have to use the software later do this:

When in the mode to take pictures, press the round "Function Set" button and change the recording pixels to "Postcard 1600 X 1200". "Postcard" is the only setting that will allow the time/date stamp to be recorded on the picture.

Then press the "Menu" button and scroll down to "Date Stamp". You can select "Date", "Date & Time" or "Off". You can only do this when your pictures are set to the "Postcard" mode.

The camera must be set in the Postcard mode under the resolution setting (L, M1, M2, M3, S, Postcard) on the function menu. Press Function, scroll down to bottom, then scroll to the Postcard mode and press the Set button.

No date stamp on photos on Canon XTi camera


Most Canons don't seem to be able to embed the date on photos unless the resolution is set to "postcard mode", which is 1600 by something pixels. Set to that resolution, and then try to set the date mark feature (it will be greyed out when the resolution is not set to a compatible mode).

Canon A95 - Date and Time setting


Date and time stamp only works in one resolution mode. It's called "Postcard" resolution, and it's the one at 1600 x 1200 pixel width and height. Set your resolution first to Postcard, then set the Date/Time back to on.
