Playback Mode Screens & Menus
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.
Press the wide angle zoom control button to enter index mode, six or twenty thumbnail size
images are displayed per page. This allows you to quickly search through you pictures.
