Playback Screens & Menus

Pressing the playback button on the back of the camera allows you to view all of the images that are saved on the camera's SD card. The DISP button lets you change the amount of information that is shown about each image, from nothing to a full list of settings with histogram.

Pressing the zoom lever to the Wide end takes you to the index mode. Here you see thumbnails of the images that are on the camera. This allows you to quickly and easily search through a large number of images.

Pressing the zoom lever to the telephoto end lets you zoom in on an image. This is a great way to check focus and detail when a computer is not available. Once you have zoomed in on an image, you can use the 4-way controller to scroll around the image. You can also crop the image to what you see on the screen by pressing the MENU button.

The built-in GPS lets you record the location information while shooting images. The camera will also create a log that records the info from an entire trip.

The built-in Wi-Fi allows you to connect to a smartphone or tablet. Once connected you can upload images to the device to share. You can also use the device as a remote for the camera, as long as you are within the Wi-Fi range.

The P610 allows you to make smaller copies of images that are one camera. These smaller images are easy to share with others and do not take up much space on the camera's memory.

You can also change the orientation of an image by 90° at a time. This saves you the time of adjusting your images later on your computer.

Movies can be played back on the camera's LCD screen. Basic frame-by-frame control allows you to watch them at normal speed or look at each frame individually. Individual frames can be captured from the videos or you can trim the movies. If you have an HDMI cable, your movies and images can be played back on any HDTV via the HDMI output on the camera.
