Playback Screens & Menus
When you select PLAY mode the last picture taken is displayed. You can move backward or forward through the
images using the LEFT and RIGHT buttons, press up to delete an image. The overlay information is displayed
briefly when a new image is selected. Press the MENU button for 2 seconds to display the extended exposure information (shown above).
Pressing the wide angle zoom button while in playback mode, will bring up an index of photos and videos that you have taken. Pressing it again brings up 22 different sized thumbnails, and pressing it a third time takes you to a list of folders that are saved on the memory card.
To zoom in on a photograph that you have taken press the tele-zoom button. This will allow you to zoom in up to 5750%, which is way to much to even tell what you are looking at.
When you come to a movie, it will be identified by the film pattern on the top and bottom of the screen. You will have only the option to play the video at this point.
Once you press the play button, the video will play and you will be given options for pausing, stopping or fast-forward, rewind capabilities.
