Playback Features


Canon EOS D60

Pressing the (Play) button brings up the last image stored full screen on the LCD. The current folder and file number is in the upper right corner, down in the lower left is the current image number and total number of images.



Canon EOS D60

While viewing a picture full screen you can press the INFO button to see all the exposure details. The current image is displayed as a hi-res thumbnail with a histogram to show the dynamic range, the ISO equivalent, the recording mode, shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation, white balance, metering mode, image size and quality, time and date.

Another feature of the info-playback thumbnail is that it will "blink" the area of the image that it deems will be overexposed, too bad it doesn't do this in fullscreen mode too. You can use this as a visual warning that you might need to adjust exposure compensation and re-shoot the picture.



Canon EOS D60

Pressing the button once will bring up a thumbnail preview index so you can quickly select an image to display. Pressing the Jump button enables you to quickly move through all stored images, your position is indicated by the slider graphic in the lower right.



Canon EOS D60

Pressing the button twice puts you into Zoom-Playback mode which magnifies the image in one step to 3.5x. You then scroll around inside of the image by moving from one segment to the next by rotating the quick select dial. The magnified image is broken up into a total of nine segments.



Canon EOS D60

Use the Rotate option to display portrait mode images on the TV in correct orientation. Each time you press the SET button it rotates the images 90 degrees.



Canon EOS D60

The Protect mode lets you tag an image so that it cannot be accidentally deleted.
