Playback Modes & Menus
When you press the playback button on the back of the camera, the last picture taken is displayed full screen (depending on the menu setting). You can move backward or forward through the images using the LEFT and RIGHT buttons. The amount of overlay information displayed is controlled by pressing the DISP. button. You can choose from no info, basic info, a full detailed list of settings with histogram or a AF-point zoom view to check focus. This view also will show you all faces that were detected in the photo.
You can quickly search through stored images using the Index playback function which is actuated by pressing the Wide zoom control button. Nine thumbnail size images will be displayed and you can select one using the LEFT or RIGHT buttons and then pressing the Telephoto zoom button. Pressing the Wide button again will put you in jump mode where you can backward or forward a page at a time.
The jump feature allows you to quickly search through your images by shot date, my category, folder, movie files, jump 10, or jump 100 images at a time.
The image can be magnified up to 10x in ten steps by pressing the telephoto zoom button. Once the image is enlarged at any step, you can move around inside of it using the 4-way selector buttons.
