These instructions explain how to insert the date in images.


  • The date and time set in the camera are recorded in image files taken (as Exif information).
  • Even if you shot images without using the Date Stamp function, you can insert and print the shooting date in images by using the Exif information and one of the following methods.

- Using a direct printer (PictBridge) to print.

- Using the included software (ZoomBrowser EX or ImageBrowser, etc.) to print.

- Using the DPOF print settings to have prints made at a photo developer's.


  • The [Date Stamp] cannot be deleted from the image data once it has been recorded because the date is written in as an image.
  • The following explanations are provided based on the assumption that the [Shooting Mode] is set to [Program] ().
