Playback Screens & Menus

(The SL300R does not have a video out feature so we are going to use the screen displays from the Kyocera S5R - they are very similar except the SL300R has a maximum resolution of 2048 x 1536)

When viewing images in the Playback mode only the battery condition icon overlays the image.
