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.

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.
