Please excuse the poor quality of these screen captures. The P7700 kit does not include an AV output cable, therefore we had to photograph the display screen.

To see the images stored on the memory card, just press the Playback button on the back of the Nikon P7700 camera. With an image visible on the LCD screen, you'll see the time and date the photo was shot in the upper left corner, along with the file name. In the lower right corner, you'll see the resolution for this photo, as well the photo number.

Press the Disp button on the back of the P7700, and you'll see additional detail about the image, which will shrink toward the upper left corner. A histogram will appear under the image. Along the right side will be the ISO setting, EV, white balance, resolution, and file number. The shooting mode, shutter speed, and aperture will appear along the bottom left of the screen. Press Disp again and all of the data will disappear from the screen.

It's easy to scroll through a lot of photos stored on the Coolpix P7700's memory card. In Playback mode, just press the zoom ring to the left, and the camera will display a 2x2 grid of thumbnail images. Continue pressing the zoom ring to the left, and you'll see grids of 3x3, 4x4, and 8x9 of thumbnail images. Highlight the image you want to see in full screen using the four-way button and press OK.

With the 8x9 grid displayed on the screen, if you press the zoom ring to the left another time, you'll open a calendar screen. The dates on which you've shot photos will be marked with an underlined number. Press OK with that date highlighted, and you can see all of the images shot on that date that are stored on the memory card.

With a single image on the P7700's screen, you can zoom into the image, just to make sure the image is as sharp as you want. Nikon included the ability to magnify the image by up to 10x. Just keep pressing the zoom ring to the right to continue magnifying the image. In the lower right corner, you'll see a black box that represents the full size image. The small white box inside represents the amount of the image that's currently visible on the screen, allowing you to see the positioning of the magnification in relation to the entire image.

Because the Coolpix P7700's LCD is of a high quality, you can do a pretty good job of determining the sharpness of the overall image using this method. Still, you're going to want to do a final check on the image's sharpness using your large computer screen.


Playback - menu.jpg

With an image or movie on the screen in Playback mode, press the Menu button to open the Playback menu. Nikon has included quite a few different commands in the Playback menu, giving you a lot of control over the images that you've already shot. The Playback menu commands are:

  • Quick Retouch - Low, Normal, High
  • D-Lighting - Low, Normal, High
  • Skin Softening - Low, Normal, High

The Filter Effects menu is accessible through the Playback menu, giving you effects that you can apply to your images. Remember that these effects aren't as detailed or precise as what you'd likely find with an image editing software package on your computer, but they'll work well for some quick in-camera editing. The editing options in the Filter Effects menu are:

  • Soft - Narrow, Normal, Wide
  • Selective Color - 12 color options, plus no effect
  • Cross Screen
  • Fisheye
  • Miniature Effect
  • Painting
  • Vignette

Finally, you can playback any movies that you've shot with the Coolpix P7700. With a movie on the screen in Playback mode, you can see data about the movie on the screen, such as the date and time it was shot, along with the file name in the upper left corner. In the lower right corner, you'll see the movie resolution and the length of time of the movie clip. Press the Disp button to remove all of the data from the screen. 

Press the OK button to begin playing the movie. While the playback is occurring, you'll see a set of playback tools in the upper left corner of the screen. Press OK again to pause the movie or use the four-way button to scroll through the control tools.
