Playback Screens & Menus
By Josh Fate
Index mode can be accessed by pressing the zoom lever to the wide side. Canon gives you 4 sets of thumbnail images, allowing you to view 4, 9, 36 and 100 images at time.
Pressing the telephoto end of the zoom lever allows you to zoom in on an image. Once you have zoomed in, you can use the 4way controller to navigate through the image.
Another way to search through your images is the "Jump" menu. This allows you to jump 10 or 100 images at a time, jump by the date the images were captured, jump to the first image, jump to category or jump directly to your movies.

Resize allows you to make a smaller copy of an image that is already on the memory card. This is a fast and simple way to make a smaller copy for email and uploading to the web.
The crop or trim menu allows you to zoom in on the image, then crop the image to what you see fit. It is an easy way to remove objects from the outside of the image, or to change the composition of the image.
Movie playback gives you all of the controls that you find on a DVR/VCR. Audio is played back on the camera's built-in speaker. With the included A/V cable, you can also watch your movies on any TV.
Movie edit mode allows you to cut and combine clips to make you movie masterpiece right on the camera. This will save you a lot of time sitting at the computer, and it can be done anywhere the camera goes.
