Hi Rohrbaugh,


In the playback mode, press the DISP button a couple of times to see the date on which an image was shot.


If you're trying to insert the date or date & time into the images, the following instructions will help with that:


  • Screens or menu listings may differ depending on the camera model being used.
  • As the actual locations of buttons / switches on cameras vary depending on the camera model, the illustrations that appear on this page may differ from your camera.
  • The [Date Stamp] cannot be deleted from the image data once it has been recorded because the date is written in as an image.
  • In the following shooting modes, you cannot insert a date onto images (Date Stamp).

- [Movie] (), [Easy]* (), [ISO 3200] (), [Stitch Assist]* ()

* Only applicable to supported models.


1. Press the <Power> button on the camera.

2. Press the <MENU> () button.

3. A screen like the one below will appear on the monitor.

 Operate the <directional buttons> to select the [Shooting] () menu.

 Operate the <directional buttons> to set [Date Stamp] to [Date] or [Date & Time].

After making these settings, press the <MENU> () button.

4. If you set [Date Stamp], [DATE] will appear on the LCD monitor.

If [DATE] does not appear, press the <DISP.> () button a few times to switch the screen display.

5. When shooting with this setting, the date will be embedded in the image as shown below.


 [Date & Time]


The date, its font and color, and the position where it is displayed cannot be changed. Also, dates and times recorded with [Date Stamp] cannot be deleted.
