Playback Screens & Menus

Please excuse the quality of these screen captures. The camera did not come with an AV cable, therefore we had to photograph the display.

The default playback view includes minimal information, such as file resolution (at bottom right), file number (at top right) and date/time information next to the battery indicator at bottom left.

Pressing the Display button brings up more detailed information. Added to this view is the ISO setting, exposure compensation, white balance and color setting (Standard) in the right column. At bottom are a histogram, shutter speed, and aperture.

In the detailed view, you can move the bar on the histogram using the multi-selector dial and the preview image will highlight those areas in the photo.

A further press of the Display button erases all on-screen information.

Pressing leftward on the zoom ring brings up views including (in succession) four, nine, 16, and 72 images.

The 72-thumbnail display looks crowded, but on the 921k-dot LCD, there's enough resolution to figure out the subject matter of most images (assuming the subject matter changed).

One more push leftward on the zoom control brings up the calendar display.

Images shot in a burst are grouped and displayed with right and bottom edges, like a flip book.

You can magnify images up to 10X in playback. As indicated by the scissor icon near the bottom of the screen, pressing the menu button will save a cropped copy of your photo.

  • Quick retouch (low, normal, high)
  • D-Lighting (low, normal, high)

Filter effects menu:
  • Soft portrait
  • Selective color (12 color options)
  • Cross screen
  • Fisheye
  • Miniature effect
  • Painting
  • Vignette
  • Photo illustration
  • Portrait (color and black-and-white)

The filter effects do not have adjustable parameters. These are simple, straightforward effects.

Shown here is a preview of the Miniature effect. The Portrait effect leaves people in color, and changes the background to monochrome.

During movie playback, pressing the display button takes away file info except for the battery indicator at bottom left and the movie resolution icon at bottom right.

There are no editing options for videos. The camera allows you to enter the playback menu and select the same selections for still images, but will a quick two-beep warning and a "File cannot be modified" message. In addition, you can not trim your movies in-camera.
