Playback Screens & Menus

By

Please excuse the poor quality of these screen captures. The ELPH 130 kit does not include an AV output cable, therefore we had to photograph the display screen.

In the PowerShot ELPH 130's Playback mode, you'll see data displayed about each image stored on the memory card. Just press the Playback button, which is marked with a play icon like what you would see on a DVD player, to open the Playback mode.

On the main Playback screen, you'll see the file name in the upper right corner, the time and date the image was shot in the lower right corner, and the image resolution in the lower left corner. 

Press Disp on the bottom of the four-way button to change the data shown on the screen. The image will shrink to fill the upper left corner and a histogram will appear in the lower left corner along with the resolution setting. Along the right side of the screen, you'll see (from top to bottom) the file name, the light metering, shutter speed, ISO, aperture, exposure valuation, flash setting, white balance, file size, pixel resolution, date and time.

Press Disp a second time to return the image to the full screen size and remove all icons from the screen. Press Disp a third time to return to the original display.


Playback GIF - thumbnail.gifThe Index feature with the ELPH 130 IS looks a lot like what you'll see with most beginner-level PowerShot cameras. With a single image displayed on the screen in Playback mode, press the press the zoom ring to the left (wide angle), and the camera will show a 2x2 grid of images. Continue pressing the zoom ring to the left, and you'll see grids of 3x3, 6x6, and 10x10. Press the zoom ring to the right to show fewer thumbnail images in the grid.

With an image highlighted in the grid, press the Func/Set button to bring that image to a full screen view. 


Playback GIF - zoom.gifCanon included a Magnify function with this camera as well. With a single image displayed on the screen, press the zoom ring to the right (telephoto) and the image will be magnified in stages, with the magnification increasing as you continue pressing the zoom ring to the right. Press the zoom ring back to the left to reduce the magnification. This feature can help you to determine whether the image's sharpness is where you want it to be.



Playback GIF - movie.gif

When reviewing movies you've shot with the PowerShot ELPH 130 IS, you can use Playback mode to see quite a bit of data about each movie, just like you can with still images. If you want to play the movie, press the Func/Set button to bring the movie control buttons to the screen.

In the main movie review screen, you'll see the file name in the upper right corner, the time and date the movie was recorded in the lower right corner, and the movie mode icon in the lower left corner. 

Press Disp to see detailed information, including a histogram in the lower left corner. Along the right side of the screen will be the file name, the light metering, movie resolution, frames per second, exposure valuation, white balance, file size, time of recording, and the date and time the movie was shot.

Press Disp again to remove all data from the screen.
