Hi Alan ... got a reply from Kyocera Yashica UK (Now called Alpha Digital Services)

It basically says ...... "The M-410 should keep the time so he must have a problem with his. Have never come across that one before on the M410-R"

I suggest you get in touch with them ...and see what they can sort out for you.

Cheers, KK.

Thanks for finding out for me,but touch wood it has never lost the time or date since my last post.However I did find on the manual on the cd,that sometimes when you remove the batteries you can lose the time and date,and you have to reset them.Regards Alan

That's good. Mine has never lost time on a battery exchange ..........I assume there must be a time limit on how long you can keep the batteries out without losing time and date.

Cheers, KK.

I have left mine out overnight when charging for 16hrs,and the date is ok when I re-insert them,but it still makes me wonder how does it keep the date.I presume the batteries charge up some internal chip which keeps the date/time for so long,Cheers Alan

I think the batteries charge up a capacitor/internal rechargeable batteryand that holds charge to keep the date and time going ....it's a guess ..... I think that is a common way of doing these things.

Cheers, KK

I took the batteries out for charging on Sunday evening,and I have just put them back in now,and guess what it has lost the date and time.So it could be it loses the charge after 24 to 36hrs, you would think it would last longer than thatCheers Alan

It's sort of what I would expect! Do you prefer to charge your batteries out of the camera? You can charge them inside if you only have one set of batteries .... although anexternal charge is usually preferable, but not necessary! That would keep the date/time going.

Do you have a second set of batteries that you could keep charged ...handy as a back-up when out and about shooting?That is what most people do. Easy to swap over the charged set when the others become weaker ...... and then charge the weak set externally .....never a missed shot that way.

Cheers, KK.
