Setting the Date/time on the VIXIA HF R10, HF R11, and HF R100


You will need to set the date and time of the camcorder before you can start using it. The [Date/Time] screen will appear automatically when the camcorder's clock is not set.

  1. Using the joystick (up/down) select the year and the move (right) to select the month.
  2. You can now use the same method to change the rest of the fields (month, day, hour and minutes) in the same way.
  3. Select [OK] and press [SET] to start the clock and close the setup screen.


  • When you do not use the camcorder for about 3 months, the built-in rechargeable lithium battery may discharge completely and the date and time setting may be lost. In such case recharge the built-in lithium battery by fitting a fully charged main battery onto the camcorder and then set the time zone, date, and time again.
  • The date appears in a year-month-day format only in the first setup screen. In subsequent screen displays the date and time will appear as month-day-year (for example, [Jan. 1, 2010 12:00AM]). You can change the date format and the clock format (12/24 hours) with the [Date Format] setting.
  • You can also change the date and time later on (not during the initial setup). Open the [Date/Time] screen from the setup menus:
