Make sure you are in the "postcard" mode or you can't turn the feature on.

You can download the manual from the link below: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=323&modelid=14901 From page 37 of the manual it looks like you can only select the time stamp in "postcard" mode. Also the date & time need to be set in the camera first. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

Dear BethSmith,
I have had the same problem for a long time.  It has nothing to do with the battery, etc..  It has to do with the software of the camera.

You are only able to have time stamps on the photos when you are in the postcard mode.  (resolution will be set to 1600x1200, at fine setting)  Check out page 29 and 39 of Advance user manual!

Good luck,
Shah

Set the resolution to PostageCard (1600x1200).
Many of these cameras have only ONE RESOLUTION setting which allows you to have a date/ date and time stamp on the file, which will print on the viewed or printed photo.

How to do it:
Turn the camera on M mode.
Use the func. set.
go down the menu to the resolution settings. (on the bottom of menu).
Pick only the postagecard (1600x1200) setting.

I also was like you, and had an awful time with a camera I was fixing. I then looked it up on the Net and found an online user manual for the Canon SD 500, which should be basically the same.

The camera must be set in the Postcard mode under the resolution setting (L, M1, M2, M3, S, Postcard) on the function menu. Press Function, scroll down to bottom, then scroll to the Postcard mode and press the Set button.

I can not use my time and date stamp


You'll need to change resolution to "Postcard" resolution(1200 pixel width) to activate date/time stamp (look for it in the menus). Unfortunately, that is the only resolution that date time stamp will work in, or show as activated/selectable in your menu.

    How do I set the time date stamp


    • Setting Date & Time Use the Date & Time function to set the date and time of your camera. This function is useful attaching date stamps on captured images. Your camera uses a 12-hour time format. 1. Press the navigation controls to adjust date and time value. By holding down the up arrow or down arrow keys, the numeric values change continuously. 2. Press OK to apply changes.

    I AM TRYING TO SET THE DATE & TIME TO APPEAR ON MY PHOTOS.


    you can only do date and time stamp under function button go to bottom where you can change size of pictures -go to right to W or wide-this is only setting you can do date time stamp on-when you change pic size and go back to menu you will see it highlighted and you can now turn it on-equals about a 2-3 megapixel size picture only-also just leave settings alone and have printer add it-date and time our always in pic data and most printers can add it

    Date stamp


    To get the date/time to be on your photos while taking the picture so you don't have to use the software later do this:

    When in the mode to take pictures, press the round "Function Set" button and change the recording pixels to "Postcard 1600 X 1200". "Postcard" is the only setting that will allow the time/date stamp to be recorded on the picture.

    Then press the "Menu" button and scroll down to "Date Stamp". You can select "Date", "Date & Time" or "Off". You can only do this when your pictures are set to the "Postcard" mode.

    Date stamp on each picture taken


    Unfortunately, the Date Stamp feature only works with the "Postcard (1600x1200)" setting. Change the shooting mode to Postcard and you can then turn Date Stamp on/off.

    Suppressing printing of date/time


    No, the date/time stamp is now part of the image. The only way to get rid of it is to Photoshop it, but 250 photos... Let me look at my manual, as mine never prints the date/time.
