Playback Mode Screens & Menus



Sony DSC-W230

Here you can see a typical Playback screen with icons for battery condition, image size, image folder, picture number / total number of pictures, Memory Stick Duo memory being used, file name and the date & time of capture. Pressing "left" and "right" on the 4-way controller allows you to scroll through stored images, and pressing "down" adjusts the volume.

Pressing up on the 4-way controller (DISPlay) toggles the amount of information shown on the screen, from nothing to a detail information including a histogram.

While viewing a picture full screen you can toggle the telephoto zoom control and zoom-in to the image in multiple steps up to 8x. Once magnified you can scroll around inside of the image using the onscreen 4-way selector.
