To get the date imprinted on pictures, the size (L, M1, M2, S, Postcard) has to be set to Postcard, and the Date Stamp option has to be turned on in the Recording Menu.

SOURCE: Wrong date and/or time

Whenever you change the batteries in your camera you need to reset the clock. You can use the LCD screen Settings menu or set the camera's clock from your computer.

SOURCE: No date and time printing on the picture

It does not print on the picture. After downloading right click on picture and then click properties and it will show time/date. You can find programs to add time/date programs to add after download.

SOURCE: Not getting date on downloaded pictures

The date and time (and a lot of other information) is always stored with the picture file in what's called the EXIF data. By default this is not shown on top of the image since neither the camera nor any photo viewing program knows which portion of your photograph is unimportant and can be obscured by this data.

Any photo editing program should be able to show you this data, probably in a separate window. Most photo printing software likewise can print this data, either on top of the picture or in the margins or on the back. Please refer to the documentation for whatever program(s) you're using.

How do you set the cannn 500d to date stamp pictures that you view


If you want to see the date /time info while viewing the pictures on the camera, you can change the display settings, press the DISP button, till you see a smaller picture and the date and time on the bottom of the screen.
If you want the date and time printed on a picture, you should use the pict bridge option from the camera and in the setup you should chose the setting for that. See page 165 and following from the manual.
But the simple timestamps of the yellow or orange stamps like in the older digital cameras, won't work.
Because the camera keeps a all information stored in the EXEF part of the picture, it won't destroy the jpeg it produces. If you really want the date and time imprinted, you should use a program on the computer, to use the date and or time info and brand it in the picture, before saving it.
Be aware all pictures do have the date and time info in them and most viewers on the computer (whatever OS) will show the info when asked, anyway.

No correct time and date


The manual, does not say a thing about date and time, so my guess is only when transfered to the computer time and date is added.
I sometimes use a GPS, that when not connected to enough satelites prints an old date and wrong time to the pictures. I do correct that with a programm called "EXIF Date Changer" because after some time you never will know the correct date, because you forgot the GPS receiver messed things up.

I TOOK PICTURES AND THE DATE WAS NOT SET CORRECTLY NOW THE STAMP ON THE PICTURE HAS THE WRONG DATE HOW DO I CORRECT IT ... I DO NOT WAS TO PRINT ANY OF THESE WITH WRONG DATES PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!!!


You cannot change the dates on the taken photos using the camera.
Copy the pictures to your PC, and use a graphic editor to put the new date.
It is a very difficult task to change the date displayed. Therefore insert a button-like graphic on top of the date and put the correct date over that.

How do i set date/time stamp on photos for DSC-W80? i have read manual nothing refers to this????


I'm sorry to inform you that the new cameras do not have the superimposing feature to add date and time on images automatically.
This is because many customers do not want that feature..
However, these cameras come with exit technology. The exit technology write the date and time information in the picture as meta data.
You can use an exif compatible software to add date and time on images.
You can also the supplied picture motion browser software to add date and time.
Please click on the below link to view the instructions to add date and time on images using the Picture Motion browser Software:

HOW TO DISPLAY DATE AND TIME


I checked the manuals and I believe that the function you want is not available within the camera menus.  The date, time, and lots of other information is included within each file that holds individual pictures.  The software you use to view and edit pictures should show the information to you and may allow you to manually add the date to the picture.  I use Photoshop Elements 6 (Mac) and it will allow me to put the date and time on a picture.  You might consider adding the date and time to the name of the picture file if you want a quick reference to the date and time
