Playback Screens & Menus


(Excuse the poor quality of these screens but the DiMAGE G600 does not have a Video Out feature; the screens were photographed off of the color LCD of a G500, which has a nearly identical menu system. Any differences are noted.)

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. Time and date of capture. On the bottom is the battery condition, image # / total # of images, quality FINe, and 2816x2112 image size (G600).

Pressing the 4-way selector up or down will display the extended image info - FILE SIZE 1963 KB, SHUTTer SPEED 1/80, F NUMBER (aperture) F4.1, FLASH AUTO ON.

While viewing an image fullscreen you can press the TELE zoom button and begin enlarging the image in steps all the way up 14.7x. 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.
