Playback Features




Sony DSLR-A100

Pressing the Play button brings up the last image stored full screen on the LCD. The image size and quality is in the upper right corner, down in the lower left are the date and time of the exposure, and in the lower right is the folder/file number, and the frame number and total number of images stored on the CF memory card. Pressing the Display button displays the image only, without overlay information.

The image can be rotated in steps of 90-degrees by repeatedly depressing the "down" button of the 4-way controller.

The current image is displayed with a histogram, image size/quality, the d-range setting, focal length, shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation, flash exposure compensation, exposure mode, metering mode, white balance mode, ISO, image stabilization, folder name/file number, frame number/total number of images, and date of exposure. Areas of the image that are close to luminance levels of 0 and 255 flash. Return to single-frame playback by depressing "up" again.

Pressing the Display button will bring up a thumbnail preview index so you can quickly select an image to display. The Index Playback Format can be set in the Playback menu for 4, 9, or 16 images. The left/right/up/down buttons of the 4-way controller are used to highlight an image, and its exposure date and frame number are displayed at the bottom of the LCD. Press the Display button again to display the highlighted image in single-frame playback.

Press the AEL button to go into Zoom-Playback mode; a large image is displayed at up to 6x, and a small image at up to 12x. You then scroll around the enlarged image using the 4-way controller buttons, and change the degree of magnification using the + (AEL) and - (Exp comp) buttons on the back. A locator is displayed at the top right corner, indicating the portion of the image that is displayed. Pressing the center button of the 4-way controller redisplays the entire image area. Only JPEG images can be enlarged; RAW images can not be magnified in playback mode.
