Playback Screens & Menus


(Excuse the poor quality of these screens but the KD-500Z does not have a Video Out feature so these had to be photographed off of the color LCD.)

A typical playback screen display. Across the top is the folder and file numbers. The "SD" indicates that we are using a Secure Digital (or MMC) type memory card. This will change to "MS" to indicate Memory Stick or "IN" when no card is inserted and you use the 2MB of internal memory. Time and date of capture. On the bottom is the battery condition, image # / total # of images, quality FINe, and 2592x1944 image size.

Pressing the 4-way selector up or down will display the extended image info - FILE SIZE 1862 KB, SHUTTer SPEED 1/556, F NUMBER (aperture) F5.5, FLASH AUTO OFF.

While viewing an image fullscreen you can press the TELE zoom button and begin enlarging the image in steps all the way up 12x. This is good for checking for critical, focus, color or composition. Use the 4-way selector to move around inside of the image and the WIDE zoom button to step back out to the fullscreen image again.

Selecting INDEX from the play menu displays nine thumbnail images. From here you can search through the stored images and select one for fullscreen playback or deletion.
