Playback Modes & Menu Options
A typical Play mode screen. When you turn the Command Dial to the Play position
the last image captured is displayed full screen with overlay data for file folder
and number, image resolution and quality, time and date. This same display is
also shown when using the QuickView function from Record mode.
Pressing the "i+" button in the center of the display switch toggles between the
full screen display, full screen w/out overlay and the index mode shown above.
From the menu you can select to display 4 or 9 thumbnail images per screen.
When an image is displayed full screen in Play or QuickView mode you can press the
Up switch to display the histogram along with the shutter speed, aperture, white
balance setting, ISO speed and exposure compensation.
The full screen playback image can be enlarged up to 4x in 15 incremental steps by
pressing the magnification button and then using the up or down portion of the 4-way
controller. To scroll around, press the center button and then use the
4-way selector, press the center button again to return to zoom mode.
Movie clips can be viewed on the EVF, LCD or a television if you have hooked up
the audio-video cable. The audio portion can be heard on the internal speaker
when played back in-camera.
Movies play back in full-screen mode on the camera's LCD or TV set.
