Playback Modes & Menu Options


Please excuse the quality of these screen captures, the M537 does not output video, so they were either photographed off of the LCD monitor or taken from a previous review.

When you slide the mode switch to the Playback position, the last image captured is displayed full screen with minimal exposure information. The 25 of 70 indicates that this is the 25 image of 70 total images stored on the SD card.

You can quickly search through stored images using the Index playback function which is activated by pressing the Wide zoom control button. Nine thumbnail size images will be displayed and you can select one using the 4-way controller and then pressing the Telephoto zoom or OK button.

You can magnify an image in Playback mode by pressing the telephoto zoom control button. This allows you to check images for critical focus, etc. You can then scroll around the image by using the 4-way controller.
