Playback Screens & Menus

By


canon_t3_play_picture_info.gifTo enter playback mode, you simply press the blue Play button on the back of the T3. When you do so, the camera will show the last image/video captured, or the last file viewed. When 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 no information at all (no shown in the above animation).


canon_t3_play_index.gifIn order to help you quickly search through stored images/files, the T3 includes an Index display option. This is accessed by pressing the AE/AF Lock button (the star button with the checker board type icon in blue), and will display an index with 4 small thumbnails. Pressing the Index button again changes to 9 thumbnails per page. You can then navigate through the files here 1 by 1 using the 4-way controller, or using the control dial will select through 4 or 9 images at a time.


canon_t3_play_zoom.gifTo critically inspect photos, the T3 offers a Magnify option. The AF point selection button (the magnifying glass icon) is used to access this option. 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_t3_play_menu.gifPlay menu options:
  • Protect Images - Protect/unprotect images
  • Rotate - Manually rotate portrait mode images
  • Erase images - Select and erase images or All images on card
  • Print Order - Set DPOF printing information
  • Histogram - Select Brightness or RGB histogram
  • Image Jump w/main control dial - 1 image, 10 images, 100 images, Screen, Date, Folder, Movies, Stills, Image Rating
  • Slide Show - Start and automated slide show playback
  • Rating - Rate Images
  • Ctrl over HDMI - Enable or Disable



canon_t3_play_movie.gifVideo files are played back full screen with VCR-like controls by simply pressing the SET button. Just select the control you wish to use and press the SET button again. When playing back movies in-camera, sound is heard through the built-in speaker, and rotating the main control dial controls the volume. You can play back video on your HDTV set using the optional HDMI cables.


canon_t3_play_movie_edit.gifYou can also edit movies right in the camera, by selecting the scissor icon when playing back a movie.
