I am still struggling with this. I am trying to have it automatically imprint the date/time each pic is taken. My Cannon does this but I still haven't found the way to make the K-r do it. The date/time is even displayed when I review pics on the Cannon and it appears in the prints. Does the K-r not have this capability or am I just not understanding the instructions? Guess I need remedial instruction. Sorry.

You must be in playback mode in other words a photo must be visible on the Monitor

* On the 4 way controller press where the flash symbol is
* use the controller to select DPOF (once encircled) press OK
* Select all images if you want it to applied to all the photo's (use the controller press flash symbol to move highlight from single image to All Images)
* Press OK once highlighted
* use up or down on the controller to set the number of copies (If any are to be made)
* Use the E DIAL (either way doesn't matter) it places a check in the date block (Dial that magnifies)
*Press OK - You're done

You should now see a symbol bottom right of your monitor indicating DPOF is set.
