Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a canon powershot a560. i would like the date on the pictures. i followed the manual which says turn on date stamp in the menu but it skips over the date stamp so i can't change it. any suggestions?


Answers :

When you turn your camera on, there is a screen which appears in the viewfinder. Push the FUNC SET button and then scroll down the column on the left of your viewfinder until you come to the one with the letters M1 M2 M3 S, etc to the right. Then select the one called "Postcard 1600x1200" by scrolling to the right. Your camera is then in the post card mode. You can then go to the date stamp in the menu and your camera will not skip over it any longer! EUREKA!!
Unfortunately you can embed the date on the image only when using the postcard mode...

I have just bought the Kodak M381 camera and when I set the date and time and click ok, the time is set but does not display on the LCD screen at any point, so when I review my pictures there is no way of knowing when I took them. You can date the pictures retrospectively but that takes time and will be incredibly tedious and you soon forget. In the manual it says to select the date time stamp but I am unable to find it in my set up menu and I'm beginning to think this camera does not have this
