Playback Mode Screens & Menus


The screens you see here had to be photographed directly off of the LCD screen as the A300 has no video out port. We hope you understand why these screen captures are not up to our usual standard.

When you press the PLAY mode button on the back the last picture captured is displayed full screen. Pressing the DISP button toggles the extended exposure information seen in the next frame.

The extended exposure information includes the recording mode (auto or manual), the flash mode, white balance setting, focus mode, exposure compensation if any,  frame number / number total recorded, quality-resolution settings, and the date and time of capture.

Pressing the telephoto zoom button while an image is displayed full screen will magnify it 10X in ten steps to allow for critical examination of details on the small LCD. You can scroll around the image while it is magnified with the 4 way navigation control.
