Epson L-500V Review
Playback Screens & Menus
When you rotate the Mode dial to the Playback position, the last picture
taken is displayed. You can move backward or forward through the images
using the LEFT and RIGHT buttons. The amount of overlay information
displayed is controlled by the Info Disp function in the playback menu.
This frame shows the "Basic" information, across the bottom is 6/12 which
means image 6 of 12 total, and the time/date of capture.
Choosing the "Detailed info" option enables the extended exposure
information screen. Here you can see icons for exposure compensation, ISO
speed, white balance, file number, scene mode used, flash mode, image
size/quality, aperture, and shutter speed.
You can quickly search through stored images using the Index playback
function which is actuated by pressing the Wide zoom control button. Twelve
thumbnail size images will be displayed and you can select one using the 4-way controller and then pressing the OK or Telephoto zoom buttons.
The image can be magnified up to 20x in 1x steps by pressing the telephoto
zoom button. Once the image is enlarged at any step, you can move around
inside of it using the 4-way controller.
Movie clips are played back full screen with audio thanks to the built-in
speaker. Once you start playing a clip, you get "VCR-like" buttons to
control the playback.
Pressing the MENU button brings up this page of options. You can delete
images (One, All, Group), start a slide show, record a sound memo, adjust
the amount of exposure information, and rotate an image for proper display.
