Playback Modes



Casio Exilim EX-F1


Pressing the Play button brings up the image last captured. The default information is displayed: image size (6-megapixel), quality (Fine), file number, battery level indicator, and time and date of capture are shown. Pressing the 4-way controller left or right or rotating the command dial scrolls through the stored images.

Pressing the DISPlay button will bring up highlight mode (shows areas of possible over exposure, not shown) as well as the Histogram option along with showing extended exposure data: Zoom position (93mm), EV compensation (0.0), ISO used (ISO 100) mode used (Program), flash mode, white balance (AWB), metering, Dynamic Range (+1), Aperture value (f7.4), Drive mode (single), and the Shutter speed (1/320). Pressing it again will remove all information and just show the picture.

If you shot your picture at the highest resolution and need it for email or web use, and don't have time to resize it on your PC, the F1 offers a Resize option. Using it allows you to create a smaller 3M, 2M or VGA sized image. The image is saved as a new file, so the original is not effected.
