There is no way as the G5 does not have a "data back" function. Your only option will be to insert it with a software program that allows you to insert text such as some version of Photoshop. Canon's own software may have the option- I don't have it in front of me to check. My Canon i960 printer's software (EasyPrint) allows for the insertion of the date much like a traditional camera data back. I personally never liked the idea of a date printedon a picture unless it was for some legal reason. Now with digital files you always have access to the date unless you delete your images after printing them.
