Playback Screens & Menus

Please excuse the poor quality of these screen captures. Though the S9300 includes an A/V cable, due to technical difficulties we had to photograph the display screen.

The default playback screen, pictured above, shows basic information such as date/time, file name, and image quality setting. Although you can zoom in on your images, and zoom out for an index view, the S9300 does not offer additional playback views with detailed camera information or histogram.

In playback, the camera zooms up to 10x in increments of 0.2x.

If you have zoomed in on an image in playback, the Menu button functions as a crop tool (Note the icon at bottom left). When you press the Menu button, the camera will prompt you with "Save this image as displayed?" This allows you to quickly crop images in-camera, without having to navigate to the editing menu.

Getting close up to inspect focus is easy, and reliable on the 921,000-dot 3-inch LCD.

One press leftward on the zoom control takes you to a four-photo index view.

Another press on the zoom control gives you a 16-photo view; a further press will fill the screen with 72 images; one more and you get a calendar for scrolling through images by date. You can also turn on the film strip feature, which you launch while viewing a single photo by quickly rotating the multi-selector dial.
