Playback Screens & Menus
By Josh Fate
Index mode allows you to search and view your images as thumbnails showing 4, 9, 36 or 100 at a time when connected via the I/O cable. When not plugged in it shows 6, 12, 48 and 130 images.
The zoom feature allows you to zoom in on your images in several steps. Once you have zoomed in, you can use the 4-way controller to move around the image. The telephoto zoom lever allows you to zoom.
Canon has added a quick menu to its playback mode, allowing you to quickly find some of the more common used settings. Included are the Rotate, Print List, Protect, Favorites, Erase, Smart Shuffle, Filtered Playback, Slideshow and My Category options.
