Playback Screens & Menus

Pressing the playback button on the back of the camera allows you to view all of the images that are saved on the camera's memory card. Pressing the INFO button changes the amount of information that you see on the LCD screen, from nothing to a full list of shooting settings including a full-color histogram.

Turning the rear dial (of the two on top) to the left takes the camera into index view. Here you get thumbnails of the images on the LCD screen. This allows for easy searching though large groups of images. Turning the dial again takes you to the calendar view. Here you can choose a set of images based on the date in which they were taken.

Turing the rear dial to the right when you are on a single image lets you zoom in on that image up to 14x. This is a great way to check your images for focus and detail when you are out shooting and do not have a computer or monitor to view them on. Once you have zoomed in, you can use the 4-way controller to scroll around the image. A small box in the lower right shows you which portion of the frame is being magnified, indicated by the small white box.





The playback menu gives you a few simple options for the slideshow playback, image rotation, edit menu, print order, image protection and connecting to a smartphone.

The edit menu provides you with a couple options for easy image editing. The shadow adjust feature brings out detail from the darker areas of your image. Redeye fix will remove redness from your subject's eyes. Crop and aspect allow you to change the overall image and there are also several settings to change and adjust the image's color.





olympus_e-m10ii_play_crop.JPG
The crop feature lets you zoom in on an image and save a new image of just what is inside the Green Box. This "crops" or trims the outside of the image, changing the composition. The more you crop the smaller your image will be, so take the extra time to line up and compose your images while shooting.

Resize makes smaller copies of your images, which are great for uploading to social media or sending to friends and family. These smaller images will be saved along side the original. In an emergency, this is a way to save some space on a memory card as well.





olympus_e-m10ii_play_movie.JPG
The E-M10 II offers some basic video playback on the camera's LCD screen. Here you can watch and scroll through a movie frame-by-frame. When hooked up to an HDTV with an optional HDMI cable, the camera can also control the videos while they are on the TV, letting you view your still images and movies on any HDTV.
