How to remove date and time stamps from photos. I know how to turn off the time function, but I want to know remove the stamps from the photos already taken.


If the photo was already taken then the date stamp is a part of the photo, exactly like any faces that may be in there. You can remove the date using photo-editing software, but whatever was behind the date is lost forever.

How do I change the date on my ViviCam 5385 digital camera?


Assuming the camera is working, with the camera off, rotate the mode dial so that the icon with the wrench lines up as the active mode. Then press the Power button and turn on the camera. Press the right arrow to select Custom Menu. Then press the down arrow to select Date and Time. Then press the OK button. Use the left and right arrows to select a part of the date to change and use the up arrow to increase the value and slide the zoom lever to down button to decrease the value.Press the OK button when the date and time (24 hour clock) is properly set.

The manual for the 5385 is available at retrevo: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Vivitar-5385-Digital-Cameras-manual/id/200bh836/t/2/ . You'll need to enter a code to access the PDF.

I hope this helps.

I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W220 digital still camera. How do i imprint/stamp a date on the photographs that I'm taking? I have many without a date so i forget when they were taken. I had a previous...


I have the same problem and am researching this topic to find an answer. Unfortunately, I think I found an answer that I didn't want to hear; there isn't a date/time stamp with this camera (?). Hard to believe Sony could make such an intelligent piece of equipment and NOT have the capability to date/time stamp...I thought that was a standard specification for ALL cameras now-days.

Camera keeps loosing the time and date settings. When turning the camera on the lens does not open, then a screen asking to set the date and time settings appears - once date reset the camera works...


have you check the settings for time and date have you saved it? You can also try to remove the cam battry for 2 mins. then put it back in then turn on the camera and then after few secs. turn it off, then see if the issue persist.

I have a syntek mini dvr and I need to know how to set time and date


The instructions in the "Time Set" directory on the supplied mini-CD say to run the "time.bat" file, then copy the resulting "time.txt" file to the root directory of the device.
That will not work if your Windows is set to the US locale for date/time! Many other locales probably won't work either. Apparently the "time.bat" file was only developed for and/or tested under the China locale. The resulting "time.txt" file will not be in the proper format nor contain a valid date and time if generated by their "time.bat" in the wrong locales!
It will only work if, at a Command Prompt (Start/Run "cmd") on your system, "echo %date%" returns a date in the format "2010-12-31 Fri" (where "12" is a month number [December in this case] and "31" is a day number - any punctuation is acceptable - it need not be hyphens). US systems generally return "Fri 12/31/2010" for the same date, which will not work for this.
Instead, one way is to simply manually create a "time.txt" file in the format shown in the instructions. It consists of a single line in the format:
2010.12.23 12:34:56
This would be for 12:34:56 PM on December 23rd, 2010, for instance.
Copy that file (which must be named "time.txt" and nothing else!) into the root directory, then Safely Remove, power it off, unplug it, eject and re-insert the SD card, turn it back on, and press the "Record" button and record a few seconds.
If you're brave, you can edit the "time.bat" file to properly handle your system. Open it into any text or code editor (NotePad will do) and look down about a dozen lines. You'll see these lines:
set b=%date% set yy=%b:~0,4% set zz=%b:~5,2% set dd=%b:~8,2% set xx=%b:~11,3%
Change the last four lines in that group to read as follows (for US dates) - changed digits are boldfaced:
set yy=%b:~10,4% set zz=%b:~4,2% set dd=%b:~7,2% set xx=%b:~0,3%
The syntax "set yy=%b:~10,4%" means "In the variable b (which contains the system date string as assigned in the previous line, "set b=%date%"), start at Character #10 (where the leftmost / first character is considered to be Character #0, not Character #1!), extract the 4 characters beginning with that one, and assign them to the variable yy."
The variable "yy" needs the four-digit year in the Common Era (aka "C.E." or "A.D."), "zz" the month (zero-padded to two digits), and "dd" the day (ditto). "xx" is assigned the three-letter abbreviated weekday, but that isn't actually copied to the "time.txt" file so there's no need to really worry about that line.
For most locales, it should suffice to simply change the starting position of the respective substring (the number between the tilde ["~"] and the comma [","]), as I did above.
The %time% string is earlier assigned to variable "a" and broken down into 24-hour hour (hh), minute (mm), and second (ss), but those should be pretty much the same in most locales. The code there shouldn't need to be modified, unless your locale returns %time% in some other format than "hh:mm:ss.cc" where "cc" is hundreths of a second. Again, the punctuation doesn't matter: it doesn't have to be colons (":"). Only the positioning matters.
To adapt this to another locale, simply execute "echo %date%" at your Command Prompt and analyze it to find the starting positions of the Year, Month, and Day (remember to start counting the characters at zero instead of one!), then change the above lines accordingly.

Date/time function


Actually, it was easy. My fault. I didn't realize I could keep scrolling through my "set-up" option - from "menu" to the date/time icon. Once I found that, I just had to work my way through it. The only thing is, it's set up as a 24 hour clock, and I would prefer it as a 12 hour AM/PM. Haven't figured out how to change that yet, but it's not serious. At least the date will be correct now.
