XF300 date/time burnin on card

Love this camera, but one question: I just had a client request burned in date/time onto card they provide. Yes, lawyers. Tried display date/time and output ON in custom display and nothing. Output must be to card directly. Dropping this question a couple of places in hope that my dimmness is the problem and it can be done.

Isn't it part of the meta data already? With the clips?

Do you mean burned in permanently so that it always displays? If so and if it's the same as the XF100, it's really deep in the menu: Custom functions>Other functions>Character Rec>0n/off.

Oh Ho! I'll try that later today when I can get off the damned computer and pick up a camera again. Thanks and I'll report back here.

You are the toppermost of the Poppermost, sir. So simple. So obscurely buried. It even gives you a bright red indicator onscreen that it's actively recording characters. Fantastic, then! Thanks.

I found that if I'm using the WFM that appears as red and green stripes along the bottom of the LCD, the date and time won't be displayed/recorded, The other two WFM displays don't interfere,
