Sony DSC-S40 Review

Playback Mode Screens & Menus
(Because the S40 does NOT have a Video Out feature, these screens were captured from the S60, some settings and features may differ.)
Playback screen has icons for battery condition, image size, picture number / total number
of pictures. Across the bottom is the folder name, image file number and time and date.
Pressing the Monitor button toggles the display of the exposure compensation, aperture,
shutter speed (the S40 does Not feature a histogram display.) Press it again to clear all of the overlay
information for playback on the TV screen.
While viewing a picture fullscreen you can toggle the telephoto zoom control and
zoom-in to the image in multiple steps up to 5x. Once magnified you can scroll around
inside of the image using the 4-way selector.
Playback index mode, nine thumbnail size images are displayed per page. You can quickly
search through the stored images and display one full screen.
Movie clip playback screen, audio is replayed through built in speaker.
You can also Divide a movie in playback. This allows you take a larger movie and
separate it into two or more smaller ones, which is very useful when wanting to
send them via email.
