Olympus C-50

When you switch the Mode dial from record to Play you are shown a fullscreen review of the last image you captured like the one above. This can also be displayed in Record mode by pressing the Quick View button.

From the menu you can select the INFO option and turn it on. You will now see the following information displayed on top of each picture. This picture was shot in SHQ mode, the filesize is 2560 x 1920 pixels, the aperture value was F4.5, the shutter speed was 1/640 second, the exposure compensation was 0.0, the white balance was automatic and the ISO sensitivity was set at 80. Next line is the date and time and on the bottom is the folder and filename.

To quickly search through your stored images you move the zoom control lever to the wideangle position and it brings up a thumbnail index page. Using the 4-way jog switch you can select an image and then display it fullscreen. This display can be set for 4, 9 or 16 thumbnail images per page.

The little green icons:   A "key" means the image is protected. The "camera" icon means it is a movie clip. The "printer" icon means it has been selected for DPOF printing.

While viewing an image fullscreen you move the zoom control lever to the telephoto position and magnify the image up to 4x. You can now move around the image using the 4-way jog switch to examine the picture for color, detail or focus.
