  • HELP! Displaying date/time

    I've just acquired an e-PL2. No, its not new, but for the price, it has all the features I need, except one.

    How can I display a date and time stamp on the screen and on the image? I've read the manual from front to back, but without success.

    For normal reviewing (play back) in camera you can change to the desired screen by pressing the Info button & you will see the date & time down the bottom left of the display. Also the file name incorporates the date as well when reviewing on a PC etc. The only time date & time is added in the photo is with PictBridge direct printing from the camera. That is described on page 124 of the E-PL2 Instruction Manual (PDF).
    I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).

      Thanks Ross.

      I need this feature for certain applications. Although the e-PL2 is 5+ yrs old, seems like a simple firmware update to make.

      Here's where my old Canon A110 point 'n shoot has it over the e-PL2.
