If you have done the "setup" of the camera and set up the date and time on the camera, that should let you activate that feature ...

I guess the question is why? The EXIF data on each file has all that information and more. Why put a bunch of alpha numeric data on a perfectly good image? It may cover an important piece of image data. As I understand it, this embedding is placed on the image file, once there, there is no way to later remove it.

That said, I use the EXIF data any time it is necessary to provide the time and date of the original file. And the images are undamaged by external data.
