Playback Screens & Menus

By

Please excuse the poor quality of these screen captures. The VR-350 kit does not include an AV output cable, therefore we had to photograph the display screen.

Playback - Still image info GIF.gif
To see the images you've previously shot and that are stored in memory, press the Playback button on the right side of the back panel of the VR-350. With a still image on the screen, you can see some information about the image by pressing the Info button (upper area of the four-way button).

The basic look shows the number of the photo file in the upper right corner of the screen, as well as the date and time the photo was shot in the lower right corner. 

Press the Info button, and you'll see information beyond the time, date, and photo number. The photo will shrink to occupy the left side of the screen. On the right side, you'll see the photo's settings data, including (from top to bottom) the shooting mode, shutter speed, aperture, exposure value, ISO, white balance, resolution, compression, and file name. 

If you press the Info button again, the photo will occupy the entire screen, with no data on the screen.



Playback - 5x4 grid.jpg
If you want to see more than one image on the screen in Playback mode, press the zoom ring to the left. The VR-350 will display a 5x4 grid of images. You can scroll through those thumbnail images using the four-way button. Once you find an image you want to see in full screen, highlight it with the cursor and press the OK button.

Unlike many other cameras that have more thumbnail options -- including a grid as large as 10x10 -- the VR-350 only offers the 5x4 configuration. With a large and sharp LCD screen, it would've been smart for Olympus to have more grid options for viewing more thumbnail images.



Playback - zoom.jpg
Another option when you have a single image on the Playback screen is that you can magnify a portion of the image, which gives you the chance to make sure that you've achieved sharp focus. Press the zoom ring to the right to begin the magnification process. There are 10 different levels of magnification. In the upper right corner of the image, you'll see a small box that represents an overview of the photo. Use the four-way button to shift the visible portion of the magnification within that overview.




Playback - playback menu.jpg
You can open the Playback menu from the Playback screen or from the main shooting screen. Just press the Menu button on the back panel of the VR-350. The Playback menu is marked with a "play" icon along the left side of the Menu screen. The options in the Playback menu are:

  • Slideshow - BGM (On, Off), Type (Normal Fader, Zoom), Start 
  • Edit - (discussed below)
  • Erase - All Erase, Sel. Image, Erase
  • Print Order - Print 1 Frame, Print All
  • Protect Images
  • Rotate



You can erase a single image at a time, or you can choose to delete multiple images through the Playback menu.



Playback - Edit Lighting Fix.jpg
The VR-350 offers a few different options for editing the images you've already shot. Just don't expect to have a large number of features with these options. Unless you just want a quick fix, you'll probably be much better served by using image-editing software to do any editing. An explanation of each editing tool is listed along the bottom of the screen. The editing options are:

  • Image Size - (VGA/640x480, QVGA/320x240)
  • Trim
  • Add Audio
  • Beauty Fix
  • Lighting Fix
  • Redeye Fix



Playback - Movie info GIF.gif
You can view limited information about any movies you've shot using the Playback feature, With a movie clip on the Playback screen, you'll see the video file number at the top right corner and the time and date the image was shot in the lower right corner. Press the Info button to see additional information. The movie clip will shrink to occupy the left half the screen, while on the right half, you'll see the exposure value, white balance setting, the movie resolution and frames per second, and the file number. To play the movie, press the OK button. You can pause the video clip by pressing the OK button again.
