Playback Screens & Menus
When you switch to Playback mode the last picture captured is displayed
full screen with a minimal amount of overlay information (image quality,
time/date, and folder-file number).
Pressing the OK/MENU button brings up this menu screen. The Left button will
toggle the amount of overlay information displayed, the Down button employs
the Erase function, the Up button starts an automated slide show, and the
Right button will take you to the full Play menu.
This screen shows the maximum amount of overlay information shown with an
image. It displays file folder number (100), picture number (0069), image
quality (SHQ), image size (2272 x 1704), exposure compensation (0.0), white
balance (AUTO), date (12/14/04), and time (14:09.)
Pressing the wide angle zoom control enables the thumbnail index mode.
Under the Setup menu, you can select to display 4, 9 or 16 thumbnails to
quickly locate a desired image on your memory card. The green "movie
camera" indicates that the image is a video file.
While viewing an image full screen, you can press the telephoto zoom
control and magnify an image from 1.5x to 4.0x (0.5x steps). Once enlarged
you can move around the image using the 4-way controller to examine the
picture for color, focus, etc.
You can also opt to rotate an image for correct display. This changes the
orientation of the image and makes viewing much easier.
Pressing the OK/MENU button when the file is a movie brings up this menu of options.
The INFO option works the same as with still images, it controls the amount
of overlay information displayed at the start of a movie. The Mode Menu
accesses the Card and Setup menus, Erase will delete the movie from the xD
card, and the MOVIE PLAY option allows you to play the movie in the camera.
While the movie is playing, the run time and total time is displayed in the
lower right corner of the screen. You can then fast forward, rewind, and
adjust the volume using the 4-way controller.
