Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A480 Digital Camera ?

Can't turn off date and time

\015 There is no option to turn it off. The only thing you can do is set up the date and time. There is no turn off option.\015

Answers :

I don't believe that feature is built into any Canon cameras. You can strip the date data with a number of EXIF editing programs. I prefer exiftool, which is free and command-line based. Try searching for "exiftool gui" and you should find a graphical interface for editing metadata. Also look at XnView (xnview.com)

I set the date and time, take a few pictures, turn off the camera, turn it back on again and it ask for the date and time to be set again. This problem developed after a year and a half of no problems. Is there some way to set the clock where it will continue after it is turned off?

It is sort of annoying that I can't turn it on and take a picture quickly since it won't let me take one until I have entered the date and time. Also, I don't think it is stamp
