Your Time & Date Titler displays the Date, Day of the Week, Time and a 2 line X 20 character Camera Title. If desired, the user can display the Time & Date with no Camera Title or just the Camera Title with no Time & Date. In either case, the on-board battery will hold the programmed information for up to 90 days with power disconnected. For ease of programming, the TDCT has four push buttons and utilizes on-screen displays. The characters can be positioned anywhere on the screen and their color can be set from black to white.
Upon powering up your Time & Date Camera Titler, "Trans American Int'l Inc." will be displayed. Pressing the "Reset" Button at this time will erase the copyright notice.
