Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A480 Digital Camera ?

I have a powershot A480 canon camera and it date stamps all my photos. How do I disable this function?


Answers :

If you press the "Function Select" button then press the outer ring UP or DOWN to select the icon that looks like a clock on the left and panel. Then press the outer ring LEFT or RIGHT until the L is selected and appears in the panel on the LHS. That will remove the date stamps from the photos.

Cheers, Richard

PS Great choice of camera by the way.

I have a canon powershot SD200 digital elph camera. The metal piece on the back of the camera which moves the camera between functions (view photos to shoot video to take photo) no longer works properly all the time.

The pictures seem fine, but the it seems like I am frequently requested to put in the date and time (i.e. about every 2nd or 3rd time I turn the camera on). Is there somethign I can do to get the camera to retain the date and time? 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
