Question about Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Date/Time Stamp option is greyed-out

This feature used to work. I noticed last week however that the date was not imprinted on my printed pictures. I checked the user's guide and went into the setup to enable it and as I scrolled down the menu list it jumped over the date stamp option not allowing access to this feature that I had just 6 weeks ago.

Any help/suggestions?

An online review says the date stamp only works in the "postcard" image format. http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/canon/powershot_sd850-review/

How to imprint the time stamp with my Olympus TG-820 Digital Camera


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

I have a Nikon Coolpix s560. I want to shut off the date/time stamp imprint that it makes. I take pictures of my art with it and cannot have time stamps in the picture.


Welcome to FixYa,

You can disabled the Date Imprint. In this option you can print your pictures without the date and time printed on it.

All you have to do is set the Date Imprint on its default setting or setting it on OFF
Just go to Set up Menu and look for the Date Imprint and set it to OFF.

There are other option where the Date Imprint will be disabled.

- When the Continous Mode is set to Continous or BBS
- When the Scene mode is set to Sports, Museum, or Panorama assist.
- When movies are being recorded.

Hope this information will help you and can answered your question.

Thank you for using FixYa.

HELP! Getting the date/time stamp off your Vivitar 5100...


When you turn on your camera, press the menu button. That will bring up the screen that has the orange buttons at the top (Capture) (Setup) arrow down using the buttons on the far right side. The down button will be the dame button that you use to delete pictures with. When you get to the botton of the page continue arrowing down and that will bring up another page. Arrow down until you get to the botton there are only 3 items on this page and the bottom item will say the following:

Date imprint ON

Press your enter button (ok button) and up will pop ON or OFF.
Arrown down to the OFF and press enter and that will remove the date imprint from your pictures.

Hope this helps you.

Print the date on the image/photo


It is not possible to embed the date/time stamp as part of the image itself with the XT. The date/time information is stored as part of the exif information stored in the image at the time of shooting.

However, you do have a couple options for printing images with the date/time stamped onto the image:

If you use the direct print capabilities of the camera when connected to a compatible printer (PictBridge, CP, or DirectPrint are all supported), you are able to enable an option that will print the image with the date/stamp printed on the image. There are also software packages that you can use that will do the same when printing from the computer.

And finally, it is possible, with some photo finishers, to request that they imprint the shooting date/time on the image. This will vary from photo finisher to photo finisher, and the will be some who can't, or won't, do this.
