Question about Canon PowerShot SX30 IS Digital Camera

2 Answers

I have a Canon SX30. I happened to turn on the Date/Time and now apparently ALL the photos have this imbedded in them. The date and time appear in the photo when I view them on my computer. I had wanted to use photos for a calendar or a book, but am afraid the photos will all have this date/time thing . How do I turn it off???

The date time stamp is permanent. Once its set and you take a picture it will stay on it even if you turn the time stamp off in the camera (this will prevent it from occurring to future pictures).

To remove it from the pictures you already have you can either crop the image so that the stamp no longer appears in the frame you want, or use a clone or blur tool in an image editing program to erase the stamp.

To turn it off in your model, press menu, use the side to side arrows to select the camera tab, then use the up or down arrows to select date stamp.

Use the left or right arrows to chose off instead of date or date and time.

Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

Camera asks to set date every time it is turned on. Anyway to fix this? Thank you


There is a small button battery for time date in the main battery compartment. That is probably your culprit. I am pasting a Canon tech page to illustrate.

I AM TRYING TO SET THE DATE & TIME TO APPEAR ON MY PHOTOS ON MY CANON REBEL T2I


theres no date a time stamp on the photo itself with DSLRs but the meta data is kept on file in the photo so it has recorderd the time and date. depending on what photo printing software your using you can bring up the time and date back on the photo. I have canon photo printer and using the bundled software easy photo print, it allows me to print time and date of the photo. or if you use adobe lightroom you can get the time and date back on the photo. the time and date stamp is more of a compact camera rather than DSLR.

Can anyone tell me how to get the date to appear on my photos using a Canon Ixus 70 camera?


The date/time stamp only works in "Postcard" resolution. Press the "Func Set" button, then scroll down to the bottom to select postcard resolution.

Then press the menu button. Select the "Camera" menu, then scroll down to the the Date Time Stamp selection to turn it on.

Date/time issue on Canon EOS 350D


I was wondering the same when I first got my EOS. Learned later that the digital pictures do not have date/time stamp on the front of the photos like film cameras' photos. Details of digital photos are stored digitally in each image file's EXIF.

If you want to print photos showing the date/time, some software including Zoombrowser EX can do that. In Zoombrowser, select the photos you want to print. In Step 2 (Printer & Layout Settings), in the bottom left, you can choose Date and/or Time and even the colour of the font.

Putting a date on the pics i take with a canon powershot


Hi Steve, thanks for coming to FixYa.

First, for your model of camera, you do know that you can only Print the date and time the pic was taken on the photo right? It does not embed the date and time data into the image, like some cameras do.
Here is a direct quote from the manual if you want to check my information. You will find it on page 21. "Setting the date and time settings does not cause the date/time stamp to appear on the images."

This may/maynot be what you wanted, either way let me know with a comment. I can describe how to set the date and time in the camera's setup menu for you if you want, and/or I can tell you how to make sure you print the date and time on your photos. Otherwise, have fun with your camera and please rate my solution a fixya.

Date to appear on photo


Set the image size to 'postcard'. Press the Function key, scroll down to the bottom icon and select postcard (L, M1, M2, S, postcard). Press Function key again.

To turn the date imprint on, go to the Record menu and set the option for Date Stamp to Date or Date & Time.

you can only do date and time stamp under function button go to bottom where you can change size of pictures -go to right to W or wide-this is only setting you can do date time stamp on-when you change pic size and go back to menu you will see it highlighted and you can now turn it on-equals about a 2-3 megapixel size picture only-also just leave settings alone and have printer add it-date and time our always in pic data and most printers can add it

Canon SD 1000 time and date stamp on downloaded photo


Set the resolution to PostageCard (1600x1200).
Many of these cameras have only ONE RESOLUTION setting which allows you to have a date/ date and time stamp on the file, which will print on the viewed or printed photo.

How to do it:
Turn the camera on M mode.
Use the func. set.
go down the menu to the resolution settings. (on the bottom of menu).
Pick only the postagecard (1600x1200) setting.

I also was like you, and had an awful time with a camera I was fixing. I then looked it up on the Net and found an online user manual for the Canon SD 500, which should be basically the same.
