Nikon D40 SLR Review
Playback Screens & Menus
Pressing the Playback button brings up the last image captured in full screen mode. This is
also what you will see after shooting a picture if the Preview option is enabled.
When reviewing images you can press the "UP" portion of the 4-way controller to display page one
of the extended information overlay.
Here you can see page two.
The Highlights overlay displays over-exposed areas by blinking them.
Here we have the exposure histogram display of the selected image.
Pressing the OK button while viewing an image will bring up the Retouch Menu.
Pressing the index button will display 4 small thumbnail images so you can quickly search
through the captured images. Pressing the button again will display 9 thumbnail images per page
Pressing the Zoom button enables the zoomed playback mode. The image is magnified further by continuing to press the button. You can stop at any one of the eight zoom views and scroll around to check for critical focus, color or composition by using the 4-way controller. Pressing the index button zooms out.
You can also rotate the main command dial to switch between stored images at the current zoom
playback position. This is great for quickly checking critical focus on a sequence of images.
D-Lighting - brightens shadows, ideal for dark or back-lit photos
Delete - Selected or All images
Just like in record mode, you can press the Help button at anytime while browsing the Playback menu system to view an explanation of each menu and option.
