Playback Screens & Menus

By

Pressing the playback button allows you to look at your captured images, starting with the last image captured. In this mode, the display button allows you to change the amount of information shown about the image, including color histogram.





panasonic_gh2_play_index_anim.gifTouching the index icon on the screen or turning the dial to the left enters the camera into index mode. This allows you to see thumbnail images of the images on the camera so you can quickly scroll through them. You can also choose your images based on the date they were taken.





panasonic_gh2_play_zoom_anim.gifTurning the dial to the right or just touching the screen allows you to zoom in on an image up to 16x. You can then touch and drag your finger across the LCD screen to move the image. This also works with the 4-way controller.





panasonic_gh2_play_mode_menu_anim.gifPlayback of your images can happen in any of the following modes: Normal, Picture Only, AVCHD Only, Motion JPEG Only, 3D Play, Category Play, and Favorite Play.

panasonic_gh2_play_crop.JPGTrimming or cropping allows you to use the zoom feature to select a smaller portion of the image and save it as a new one. This is also much easier than doing it on a computer, but you do not have as much control.





panasonic_gh2_play_resize.JPGResize allows you to make a smaller copy of an image that you have already captured. This is a great way to save or free some space on a memory card. It is also an easy way to make smaller copies for email or posting to the web.





panasonic_gh2_play_rotate.JPGRotate changes the orientation on the image by 90° at a time. Again this is an easy way to make changes without having to edit the image on a computer.





panasonic_gh2_play_movie.JPGPlayback of your movies can be done either on the camera's LCD screen or on a TV or HDTV via the camera's HDMI and AV outputs. VCR/DVR-like controls allow you to stop, play and go frame by frame through the movies. When viewing on the LCD screen, the camera's built-in speaker will handle the audio for you.





panasonic_gh2_play_movie_edit.JPGVideo divide allows simple editing features on the camera. This takes away the need for a computer for simple jobs like cutting the final seconds out or off of a video if it is not needed.
