Playback Screens & Menus

Switching the camera into playback mode brings up the last image that you have captured. Your images can be viewed alone or with varying amounts of the shooting information. These can be selected by pressing the DISPLAY button, however, the histogram must be turned on and off in the Setup Menu.

Index mode allows you to quickly search through your stored images by creating thumbnails for you to look through. The FZ35 allows you to see 12 or 30 images at a time. You can also select your images by the date they were taken through the calendar screen.

Pressing the Zoom lever toward the telephoto end allows you to zoom in on your images to 2x, 4x, 8x and 16x. You can use the 4-way controller to navigate through your image once you have zoomed in.

The leveling feature allows you to slightly adjust the oreintation of the image in order to "level" something in your image. This way you always have a straight and level shot.

Resize allows you to make a smaller copy of an image that is already saved on your camera. This is a great way to quickly resize images that will be emailed or uploaded to the web without spending extra time on a computer.

With the trimming feature you can zoom in on your images until you reach an image that like on the LCD. Then pressing the set button will save just what you see on the LCD as a new image.

Movie playback is very easy no matter how you go about it. The controls are the same for playback on the LCD, on a TV via the AV cable or on an HDTV with a HDMI cable. Using the 4-way controller, you can play, pause, stop or search forward and back one frame at a time.
