Playback Mode Screens & Menus


(Note: Please excuse the poor quality of these screen captures. Due to the fact that the A310 has no video out capabilities, they were photographed directly off of the LCD.)

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 file name, a histogram display, recording mode (auto or manual), exposure compensation, white balance setting, ISO speed, flash mode used, metering mode,   frame number / number total recorded, size/quality settings, and the date and time of capture.



Canon PowerShot A310 Zoom


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.

Pressing the wide angle zoom button brings the thumbnail index mode with nine small images per page. You can quickly go through stored images and find the one you want to display full screen.
