Playback Screens & Menus

Pressing the playback button on the back of the camera allows you to view all of the images that are stored on the SD card(s). Within the menu system, you can choose what information the camera will show about each image. Press up and down to change the amounts of information.

Once in playback mode, you can use the index view to quickly search through your images. Pressing the zoom out button more than once changes the number of thumbnails available, until you reach the calendar view. Once there you can choose your images by the date they were taken.

The zoom in button allows you to get a much closer look at the images on the SD card(s). Once you have zoomed in, you can use the directional controller to scroll around the image. This is a great way to check your images for focus and detail on the high resolution 3.2-inch LCD.
