Displaying the date in images

This camera cannot record the shooting date directly on the images it takes. To display the image and the date (the shooting date) at the same time, there are the following ways to do that.
  • Display the shooting information when playing images back.
  • Insert the date when printing images.
For information about how to display the shooting information when playing images back, please see the instruction manual that came with your camera.


Inserting the date into images you print out

To insert the date into images you print out, either use the DPOF settings or print them using the ImageBrowser EX software that came with your camera.
The DPOF format is a digital camera recording format for saving information about image sizes, trimming settings, the camera used, and date/time settings to the image data.
With a camera that supports DPOF, you can select the images to be printed, set the number of copies and information to be printed in advance, and save these settings to a memory card.
If this memory card is installed into a printer that supports the DPOF format, you can print out the images with the date without making any additional settings. In addition, if you order prints from a digital photo finishing lab that accepts the DPOF format, the date can be printed with the images based on the information saved on the memory card.
For details about the DPOF settings, please refer to the instruction manual that is bundled with your camera.



You can insert those dates when printing images in ImageBrowser EX. When doing so, you can also choose whether to insert the date or time and select the character style (font) for .
