Playback Screens & Menus
By Josh Fate
Index mode allows you to search quickly through the images saved on the memory card. The camera will show thumbnails between 9 and 100 at a time. Unfortunately any images that have been rotated on a computer will show up as a question mark when put back into the camera.
Using the zoom control in playback mode allows you to zoom in on a captured image. The 4-way controller allows you to scroll around the image. This allows you to check the focus of your images.
The Playback menu allows you to: Erase a single frame or all frames, Mark Images for upload, Create a slide show, Remove Red Eye in your portraits, Rotate an image, Protect images, Crop (trim), Resize an image, Copy images between internal memory and the SD card, Record/Re-record a Voice Memo, Erase Face Recognition, Assign a print order and even assist you in creating a photobook.
Cropping allows you to trim your images to help improve the composition or remove an unwanted item from the edges of the images.
Resize allows you to make a smaller copy of an image that is already on the memory card. This is perfect for email and web upload, and also works well if you need to save some space on you card.
Your movies can be played back on the camera's LCD and built-in speaker. The 4-way controller also provides DVR-like controls. If the LCD isn't big enough for you, an optional HMI cord allows you to hook up to any HDTV.
