When you turn your camera on, there is a screen which appears in the viewfinder. Push the FUNC SET button and then scroll down the column on the left of your viewfinder until you come to the one with the letters M1 M2 M3 S, etc to the right. Then select the one called "Postcard 1600x1200" by scrolling to the right. Your camera is then in the post card mode. You can then go to the date stamp in the menu and your camera will not skip over it any longer! EUREKA!!

Unfortunately you can embed the date on the image only when using the postcard mode...

How do I get the time and date to stamp on my pictures?


Time date stamp only works and is selectable in "postcard" (1200 pixel width) resolution. First select this resolution, then time date stamp should be selectable in the menus.

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.

Cannot turn date stamp on in menu settings.


Date stamp is only possible when you set the resolution (picture size) at "Postcard 1600x1200" option, if the date stamp is set to "Date & Time" or "Date" option

I cannot get a date stamp in my pictures with my Canon power shot A560. I can't get the option to turn it on, it says date stamp off.


In order to get the date stamp on the pictures, the resolution/size has to be set to "Postcard". Look at the menu and you will see L, M1, M2, M3, S, and Postcard. Then you can turn on the date stamp option.

Canon A540


The date will only show up on the picture under a limited set of circumstances on the Canon PowerShot digital cameras, of which the A540 is one. You've probably found the Date function in the menu, but discovered that it was off, grayed out, and skipped over whenever you tried to reset it.

Date stamp will only work in "Postcard" mode. Press the Function button (labeled "FUNC SET"), then press the down button until you reach the Recording Pixels selection (usually labeled "L", but not always). It's probably the bottom onscreen selection. Use the right or left buttons to select Postcard, then press the Function button again.

Press the Menu button and scroll down to Date Stamp. Now you should be able to select "Date" or "Date & Time" with the right or left button. Press Menu again and take your pictures.

Won't set date and time


Greetings bpm123,

My suggestion is to simply turn the date time stamp off in the setup menu. In reviewing the instruction manual, it appears you can obtain instructions on how to do this starting on page 21.

I hope this helps!

Thank you,

Dorothy
