Playback Features


Canon EOS 300D

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 shutter speed, aperture, current image number and total number of images.

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. You can use this as a visual warning that you might need to adjust exposure compensation and re-shoot the picture.

Pressing the (Index-Reduce) button will bring up a thumbnail preview index so you can quickly select an image to display.

Pressing the Jump button enables you to move a page at a time through the stored images, your position is indicated by the slider graphic in the lower right.

Press the (Enlarge) button to go into Zoom-Playback mode, each time you press the button the image is magnified more until you reach the maximum of 10x. You then scroll around inside of the image by using the 4-way controller.

Canon EOS 300D Digital Rebel

The Digital Rebel is PictBridge compatible, just plug the USB cable from the camera directly into the special USB connector on the printer. Shown here is the new Canon i960 Photo Bubblejet printer. Canon is upgrading all of their inkjet photo printers to be PictBridge compatible as well as their new 4x6" dye sub printers like the CP-200 and CP-300.



Canon EOS 300D Digital Rebel

The camera "knows" when it is connected to a PictBridge printer and displays a "SET" icon in the upper left hand corner. Press the SET button to enter the direct print menu. Here you select borderless, bordered, time/date stamp, # of copies, paper size, and can optionally trim the image to fit the 3:2 aspect ratio of 4x6" prints.

Select your options and then hit the SET button to print - that's it, quick and simple, "no-computer needed" printing of your digicam images.
