HUH? Don't know what you're asking. Don't know what a DDY is and what it has to do with the Oly C720.

Do you mean that you want the 720UZ to imprint date/year to your pictures? Like some film cameras do?

I can't think of a single digital camera that'll do that. But I'm sure you can find some third party software that will let you deface your images that way. :lol:

I've never seen it referred to as DDY, always DMY or D/M/Y. I don't know why anyone would want DDY, Friday 21, 2003? How would you know the month? That would be d/D/M/Y wouldn't it? From my database days.

Anyway, the 720 doesn't do that.

What you need to do is do it in a photo program that has the ability to add text to a photo, and just type it in.

A sidenote, the 720 (and most other digital cameras) store the date in the picture in two ways, one is the file information. The other way is in the Exif info which is stored in the picture itself...in the Exif you'll find other information as well like what settings the camera used to take the picture...as long as the picture is unedited, or edited with a program that is Exif friendly. For information about Exif, do a search as there are already many messages on the subject.
