Playback Screens & Menus

Note: Do to the FE-120 not having video output capabilities, these screens were taken from similar Olympus models as well as the owners manual. Some settings may differ.

After you take a picture or when you switch to Playback mode, the last image captured is displayed full screen with a minimal amount of overlay information.

This screen shows the extended exposure information: you can see the internal memory was used, the file folder number (100), picture number (0005), image quality (HQ), image size (2816 x 2112), exposure compensation (+2.0), Sunny White balance, date (8/30/05), and time (15:30) and this is image number (5) of all the images currently on the xD card.

Pressing the wide angle zoom control enables the thumbnail index mode. Under the Playback menu, you can select to display 4 or 9 thumbnails to quickly locate a desired image. The green "movie camera" indicates that there is a video file.
