G1X Mark III date and time
1

I turn the camera off and remove the battery. After a few days, I put a battery in and turn the camera on and it prompts me to set the date and hour. As if it’s the first time I’m using it after purchase. Anyone run into that problem and was able to fix it? I sent it for repair at the authorised dealer, been there for more than a week and they tell me they’re still trying to open the case with Canon. As a preliminary idea, they told me there may not be an internal battery that takes care of that memory but it may be part of the board, in which case repair would be costly.

No perfect gear out there. Just be happy with what you have and go shoot.
