Date stamp.
• The date cannot be stamped on movies.

zone and date is 
displayed when the 
camera is turned on.

restored to their default values. Configure the 
camera settings again.
• The internal clock battery is used to power the 
camera clock and to retain certain settings. 
Charging time of the clock battery takes about 10 
hours when you insert the battery into the camera 
or connect the AC adapter (available separately) to 
the camera, and the clock battery operates for 
several days even after the camera battery is 
removed.

reset.
The camera makes

When Autofocus mode is set to Full-time AF or 
while in some shooting modes, the camera may 
produce an audible focusing sound.
