canon_t2i_play_display.gifWhen you press the Play button on the back of the camera either the last image/video captured or the last file viewed along with little to no exposure information is displayed on the LCD (depending on menu settings used). While you're in Play mode pressing the DISP. button controls the amount of information displayed on the LCD from: minimal info (aperture/shutter speed, file and image numbers), complete exposure info (mode used, ISO aperture/shutter speed, metering, picture style, file size, etc.) and a brightness histogram, extended info with the RGB histograms, and back to no information at all.




canon_t2i_play_index.gifTo help you quickly search through stored images on the card, the T2i offers an Index display option. Activated by pressing the AE/AF Lock button (the checker board icon), this option will display an index with 4 small thumbnails. Pressing the Index button again changes to 9 thumbnails per page. You can then using the 4-way controller or control dial to navigate through your files.





canon_t2i_play_zoom.gifFor those who wish to examine photos more closely, you can use the Magnify playback function. Here you press the AF point selection button (the magnifying glass icon). Each time you press the button the image is magnified more until you reach the maximum of 10x. At any step you can scroll around inside the image using the 4-way controller.

canon_t2i_play_movie.gifVideo files are played back full screen with VCR-like controls, or on your TV via the supplied Audio/Video cable. The T2i also offers HDMI output when using the optional HDMI Cable HTC-100 (about $70). When playing movies back in-camera, sound is heard through the built-in speaker, and rotating the main control dial controls the volume.


canon_t2i_play_movie_edit.gifYou can also edit movies right in the camera. This is a new function that was not available on the T1i, however we've seen this functionality for years in Canon's PowerShot line.
