Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting the date and time, part of Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) Essential Training.
Your camera has a clock and calendar in it.…Every time you take a picture the date and time are stored with that picture.…This can be very handy when you're editing not just to find out when you took…a picture, but for sorting your images or searching for images or for…Geotagging your images.…With the right hardware and software, you can add longitude and latitude data to…your images in postproduction, but for that to work you have to have the…camera's clock set properly.…Also, if you travel you will want to reset the clock as you change time zones,…so knowing how to set the date and time is very important.…
Setting the clock is done through the menu system, so I am going to hit the…menu button to get into my menus, and I am just going to scroll over here to the tools section.…Most of these utility kind of functions are going to be in one of these tools…menus, and sure enough right here, and the second one is Date/Time.…Hit the Set button and it shows me its current Date and Time settings.…
