How do I turn off the date option?

I can't find the owners manual and the date shows up on all of my pictures. There must be some way to turn this option off, right? I have pressed every button on it but haven't hit the right combination yet. Can you please advise? Your time is much appreciated.

Turn the Camera on

Press the lower of the two buttons on the back which border the screen - the one marked "menu"

this will bring up a screen with two tabs - the left tab marked "capture"

Scroll down to the last item on the list under the captrue tad - it should read "date imprint"

Switch it to "off"

You are done.

If i put my camra on self timer win i print the pictures will the time show up on the pictures

The time it took the picture? You want to know if the camera will show the time it took the picture using the self timer?

My answer is Yes and No.

Do you have your camera set to showing the date and time on the pictures now? If you do, then using the self timer would not change anything.

If you do have it set to showing on the picture and you don't want the date and time to show then change the setting on the menu function of the camera and turn this option off.

If you do not already have the camera set to show the date and time, using the self timer option is not going to make it suddenly appear.

Manual can be downloaded free from here ....

Basically the date stamp can be turned on / off as an option on the RECORD menu. Page 33 of the manual explains it (with pictures).

Note that if the option is turned on, it states that the date / time is permanently embedded in the picture.

Hope this helps

The date and time can be included on the pictures taken only with the camera in postcard mode. You must also activate the date stamp option in the menu.
To set the camera into postcard mode, press the [Func.] button on the camera, then use the [arrow down] key to go down to the last option in the menu, and there you can choose the [Postcard mode]. Press [Func.] again to exit the function menu.

How do I turn off the date time function. It can be altered but there appears to be no way to turn it off.

Well ,there's good and bad news.

the usermanual....

suggests that you need to set the time and date (How to - page 18), as its stored with each image. There appears no option to turn it off "at the recording stage".

However, on page 118, hidden in the <print settings> menu the option there is the option to turn off (suppress) the date on printing.

So it would suggest that the file is kept separately from the image.
...... Which probably means if you look through the official software you see it, but if you looked at the jpeg through another viewer (such as xp media center, adobe photoshop, photosuite etc ... there are lots) it may not show up on the projected image.

Just a theory, but one worth looking into?

Please help me, i have a fuji finepix a350 camera and i won my camera to show the date inside the picture, i tryed all the options but it shows the date for 2-3 seconds on the scren and then does not shows...

You can't get date on the pictures, when viewing them on the screen og on the computer. You can print pictures with date printed on them. Press Menu/OK while viewing the picture on the camera. Select DPOF, select With date. You need to do this with every single picture you want date on. It also requires your printer to be DPOF compatible.


In the Camera Settings there is an option to Enable/Disable the date stamp. Look for that option and enable it to get the date on your clicked pics. In the settings only you will find the clock settting / date/time settings to adjust the date and time. Refer your manual.

How do I turn off the date option?

Go to the Capture Menu. In the Capture menu, you can determine the conditions you would like to choose such as Size, Quality, Scene, EV, White Balance, ISO, Color, Saturation, Sharpness and Date Imprint. Press the MENU button and then scroll through the options. Choose "Date Imprint" option and then change it to OFF so that the Date will not be showed on the captured image. If you want the manual just download it from this site "". Hope it helps.
