Hi Graham,

My name is***** will try my best to help you with your question.

There is a small backup battery inside the G12 that retains the date and time information.

It is an internal rechargable lithium battery which is soldered to a board inside the camera.

To replace the rechargable date battery, you may need to send the camera to a Canon Service Center or you could attempt to open the camera and replace it by yourself.

Kindly rate my service 5 stars at the top of your question page if my answer helped so I am rewarded for my time; tips appreciated :)
Otherwise please reply back if you need further assistance.
