In order to embed the date in the photo, the camera has to be in the "Postcard" mode. That's on the same menu as the picture size -- L, M1, M2, M3, S, Postcard. Once set for Postcard mode, the date/time can be turned on.

Any solution to the battery problem? Low indicator comes on WAY too soon! Canon A570


I had the same problem. Here's the solution. Go into menu settings, then over to tools, select reset all at the bottom of options list. You may have to re-enter the date and time. This solved the low battery problem for me. I hope this helps.

Can not seem to set date to appear on my Canon PowerShot A610 - is it possible? in menu Date Stamp is grayed out


If the current date & time is not set in the root menu, the T&D stamp feature isn't available.

Check your quality settings as well.
My Canon won't allow stamping on portrait-quality prints, or hi-speed settings.

Date stamp on photos option is not getting enable in my camera, how to make it enable.


In the <REC> menu, its an option called <Date Stamp>. You need to toggle it to <ON>.

Note that when its on, it permanently etches the date into the picture, so you need to make sure your time and date are set correctly.

Page 33 of the manual explains it (with pictures)

You can download the manual free from here:

Date/TIme Screen ALWAYS appears when camera turned on.


You need to replace the lithium date/time battery. It is a CR1220 coin cell and it's replacement can be done using the instructions on page 109 of the advanced guide. If you don't have a copy you can get one here:

My PowerShot A570 stop adding the date/time stamp on each shot. Followed the directions and the selected menu won't let me enable it. It used to work. Does the internal battery (not the AA batteries)...


According to page 33 of the manual, the date/time stamp can only be embedded in the image in the Postcard mode. Set the image size (L, M1, M2, M3, S, Postcard) to Postcard.
