Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

That is a Sony digital camera. I am looking up the specifications, and if they indicate it, any instructions for enabling time-stamping of pictures it takes. Expect another posting with results within about 10 or 20 minutes. Thanks.

The A330 camera does have that capability.

It is in the PictBridge menu, under the 'Date Imprint' option... which has three varieties, either

Day and Time





If you have trouble finding the PictBridge entry in the menu... it's only for adding the stamp to a print from this camera when directly attached to a printer.

So you cannot imprint a date-time stamp on the pictures on this camera, *apparently*. There is a vague hint that it should be do-able, but it is not mentioned in the manual for the camera.

(Do you have any indication that it is possible? if so, a hint as to where you saw such an indication and what it was, might help me find that option - *if* it exists.)

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!
