Playback Screens & Menus

Nikon_AW110-playback.jpg
The simplicity of this camera's operation extends to its playback functions. There is just one display option, pictured above. You can not display additional camera settings while viewing a smaller playback image, or show a histogram, for example.

There are four playback modes, which allow you to locate your shots more easily. To pull up the menu, you press Playback a second time.

Playback modes:
  • Play: All images are played back
  • Favorite pictures: Only images you've added to this album are displayed
  • Auto sort: Images are sorted into categories such as portrait, landscape and movies
  • List by date: Images recorded on the same date are played back

Nikon_AW110-playback-4up.jpgPressing downward on the zoom control brings up a succession of index views. The first view shows four thumbnails on the screen. It may not be apparent in this screen shot, but to the naked eye it is obvious that index thumbnails are not as sharp as full-screen previews.

Nikon_AW110-playback-9up.jpgAnother press of the zoom control brings up a nine-thumbnail index view.

Nikon_AW110-playback-16up.jpgA 16-thumbnail view follows.

Nikon_AW110-playback-72up.jpgThe last index view includes 72 thumbnails. Without a dial or a way to page up or down, however, navigating with only the four-way buttons can get time-consuming.

Nikon_AW110-playback-calendar.jpgIn the List by Date playback mode, the LCD displays a calendar of the month beside a thumbnail of the image. You can reach this mode by pressing on the zoom control after having gone through all the index views. Or, you can press the playback button to reach the playback mode menu.

Nikon_AW110-playback-zoom.jpgPressing upward on the zoom control magnifies the on-screen image by 3X initially. As indicated by the scissors icon at lower left, you can save the cropped image as a separate file by pressing the menu button.

Nikon_AW110-playback-zoom_10x.jpgPressing the zoom control continues to magnify the image up to 10X.


Nikon_AW110-playback-quick-effects.jpgJust as in shooting mode, the quick effects menu displays as icons, allowing you to apply one of 12 effects, including selective color, which has 12 color selections itself. You reach this menu by pressing the OK button in playback - it's not located in the playback menu, which you reach via the menu button.

The best part about the quick effects menu is that it displays thumbnail previews of the effect applied to your image rather than a canned image included with the camera for demonstration purposes. This is a nice touch that should save you time and wasted effort.

Quick Effects menu:
  • Painting
  • High key
  • Toy camera effect
  • Low key
  • Soft
  • Fisheye
  • Cross screen
  • Miniature effect
  • High-contrast monochrome
  • Sepia
  • Cyanotype
  • Selective color (12 choices)
  • Fog removal


Nikon_AW110-playback-menu.jpg
The playback menu is reached by pressing the menu button below the four-way control.

Playback menu:
  • Quick retouch: High, normal, low
  • D-Lighting: Yes, no
  • Glamour retouch: All, skin softening
  • Data imprint
  • Print order: Select images, delete print order
  • Slideshow: Start, effects (classic, zoom)
  • Background music: On, off
  • Frame interval: 2 sec., 3 sec., 5 sec., 10 sec., manual advance only
  • Protect
  • Rotate image
  • Small picture: 640x480, 320x240, 160x120
  • Voice memo
  • Copy
  • Sequence display options: Individual pictures, key picture only
  • Favorite pictures

Nikon_AW110-playback-movie.jpgLike playback for still images, movies are displayed with minimal information overlaid.

Nikon_AW110-playback-movie-edit.jpgOnce you have begun playback of a movie, a timeline appears along the bottom of the screen and playback button icons show up at the top. If you navigate to the edit button, you will launch this edit menu on the right side of the screen. This prompts you to choose start and end points for the video.

You can not apply the quick effects filters to videos.
