One of my cameras stopped time stamping.  How long do the batteries for the date feature usually las ton the owl pf? Unfortunately you dont realize you may have a problem untill you develop the most recent film and you have reset your cam and left the area:confused-yellow:   I plan on changing the battery soon but I had the impression that the date impression would fade gradually before losing it totally.  Mine just winked out at once between rolls.:moon:

Hey arlow...

Make sure that the bar is still showing in the door date display.  I accidently turned mine off while loading the cam in the enclosure the last go round...  got a whole roll with no stamps, didn't find out til the pics were back and the cam was reset...so you know the next roll was similarly afflicted, LOL
