Pressing the Play button calls up the last image you shot along with some basic exposure information.
While you're in Play mode pressing the DISP. button adds the quality (L) and the image number (64 of 72 images shown here).
Another press brings up complete exposure info and a brightness histogram. A final press adds the RGB histogram.
While in Play mode you can display an index of the last 4 images by pressing the Index button (the checkerboard icon).
Pressing the Index button again changes the screen to the last 9 images. You can use the 4-way controller to navigate
through your images.
If you would like to enlarge an image to examine it more closely just press the Zoom 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.

PictBridge printing and viewing your images on a TV
The Digital Rebel XSi is PictBridge compatible. Just plug the USB cable from the camera
directly into the USB PictBridge connector found on the front of many modern photo printers and instructions will
appear on the camera's LCD screen. For instance
the Canon MP970
is PictBridge compatible.
When the camera and printer are connected through PictBridge, the camera's LCD is used to select the images and
options for your print job. Usually it's as simple as selecting the photo and pressing the camera's OK button.
(Shown here are PictBridge menu screens on a Canon Digital Rebel dSLR).
Viewing your images on a TV
Using the AV cable that comes with the XSi you can watch your photos on any TV with a video in port. Just plug the
cable into the Video Out terminal and plug the RCA connector into your TV. You can select between NTSC or PAL
formats. When you are using the video connector, menus screens are displayed on the TV.
