Procedure for setting the date/time on the PowerShot G10.


Setting the Date and Time

The Date/Time menu will appear the first time the camera power is turned on or whenever the built-in rechargeable lithium battery charge is low. For this instance start from Step 3 to set the date and time. To change the existing date and time use the following procedure below.

  1. Press the <ON/OFF> button until the camera powers on.

  2. Press the <MENU> button to display the Rec. or Play menu.

    - Use the button to select the (Set up) menu.
    - Use the or button to select [Date / Time].

  3. Use the or button to select a field (year, month, day, hour, minute and date format), and the or button to change its value.

  4. To put the settings into effect, press the <FUNC/SET> button after setting the date format.
  5. Press the <MENU> button to redisplay the Rec. or Play screen.
  • Please note that the date and time settings may reset to the default settings if the camera battery has been removed for more than three weeks. Reset them when this occurs.
  • Setting the date and time settings does not cause the date/time stamp to appear on images.

Charging the Date/Time Battery

  • The camera has a built-in rechargeable lithium battery for saving settings such as the date and time. This battery is recharged by the battery pack while it is in the camera. Right after purchasing the camera, leave a charged battery pack in the camera, or plug in the AC Adapter Kit (sold separately), for about 4 hours to charge the date/time battery. It will charge even when the camera's power switch is off.
  • If the Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, the date/time battery charge is low. Use the above method to recharge it.
