Playback Screens & Menus
By Josh Fate
Pressing the zoom lever to the "wide" end enters the camera into index mode. Here you can view numerous thumbnails at a time of your captured images. There is also a calendar view that allows you to search your images based on the date in which they were taken.
Pressing the zoom lever to the "telephoto" end allows you to zoom in on an image up to 10x. Once you have zoomed in, you can use the 4-way controller to scroll around the image. Pressing the menu in this situation will allow you to crop the image and save a new copy with just what you see on the screen.
Playback Modes: Play, Favorite Pictures, Auto Sort, List Date
The Playback menu has options for: Quick Retouch, D-Lighting, Skin Softening, Filter Effects, Frame, Print Order, Slide Show, Protect, Rotate Image, Small Picture, Voice Memo, Copy, Sequence display options, Choose key picture, Favorite Pictures.
Quick Retouch allows the camera to retouch any still image on the camera. Pressing up and down allows you to select the amount of adjustment that will be made. The adjusted file is saved as a new file on the memory card.
Movies can be played back on the camera's LCD screen or on a TV via the USB or HDMI output cables. There is also an option that allows you to edit and crop your videos right on the camera.
