Sony DSC-T77 Review

Playback Modes & Menus

Note: Due to the fact that the T77 does not output all of the available screen information/menus when using the video out feature in Playback mode, our playback mode screen captures are limited. We feel this has been done to allow for better picture sharing with friends and family or when viewing on standard and HD televisions. There are many different settings available, like Retouching features including Trimming, Red Eye Correction, Paint, Resize, Wide Zoom Display, Rotate, and Movie editing functions.

The playback screen here shows no extra information. On the LCD itself you will see all the info/buttons, but as mentioned above, they are not shown when using the A/V cables in Play mode. Just like in Record mode, there are three display settings where you choose the amount of information and controls as well as an optional Histogram display.

Press the telephoto wide angle button or the icon on the LCD to enter index mode. Twenty thumbnail size images are displayed per page. This allows you to quickly search through you pictures, and you simply touch the image that you want to see full screen. Here you can also hit the play button on the left side to start a slideshow. This is the Only screen that shows all of the available options through the video output feed.
