Playback Screens & Menus
By Josh Fate
When you press the playback button on the back of the camera, the last picture taken is displayed full screen. You can move backward or forward through the images using the LEFT and RIGHT buttons. The amount of overlay information displayed is controlled by pressing the DISP button. You can choose from no info, basic info, a full detailed list of settings.
You can quickly search through stored images using the Index playback function which is actuated by pressing the Wide zoom control. The amount of times you move the Wide zoom control will determine the amount of thumbnails shown, from either 12 or 30! Pressing it again then brings up the calendar menu which allows you to access you images by the date taken.
The image can be magnified up to 16x in 4 steps by pressing the telephoto zoom button. Once the image is enlarged at any step, you can move around inside of it using the 4-way selector buttons.

Resize allows you to make your images smaller on the camera without the need for a computer. The picture will save as new file so that you do not lose the original.
The rotate feature allows the camera to rotate an image without a computer 90° at a time.
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.
