I'm having trouble figuring out how to add a date and time stamp to recordings on this camera. Usually most video camera's have an option to toggle a date and time stamp, but I can't seem to find it for this camera. Can anyone help me?
I want to show the real time date and time and have it be displayed on the recorded video clips.

Do you mean XA40? I don't think an AX40 exists.
Page 72 talks about setting a User Bit which includes date and time. It only works on clips filmed in XF-AVC format and only to internal memory. It does not appear to work with SD Cards. It may be different for external displays connected to HDMI out but I couldn't find information about this.
You can all Canon as well. They are happy to answer questions and help.
