Playback Modes & Screens



Casio QV-5700

Flipping the mode dial to Play will display the last image captured full screen as shown above. Pressing the DISP button will cycle between this display and the next frames with exposure information and a histogram.

Here you can see a histogram which displays the dynamic range of the captured image as indicated by the black to white bar underneath. The exposure mode (P, A, S, M, AUTO), the drive mode (single or continuous), the metering mode (multi, center or spot), the flash mode, the aperture value, shutter speed and image file sizes.   If you press the DISP button again all of the overlay info is removed, this is useful when doing a slideshow on a TV screen.

If you push the zoom control lever to the wideangle position during playback it toggles the thumbnail index mode. Nine small images are displayed per screen and you can move the arrow to the desired image to quickly display it fullscreen.
