Playback Screens & Menus

Pressing the Playback button on the back of the camera allows you to view all of the images that are saved on the camera's memory cards. The INFO button allows you to change the amount of information that is shown about each image. As you can see in the screens above, there is plenty of info to be shown for each image.

Index mode allows you to view and select images based on the thumbnail images on the LCD screen. There are several levels, showing from 4 to 100 images at a time of the screen. This is a great way to search through a large number of images for a specific one.

Zooming in on an image is another great feature, that lets you check the focus and detail of your images without having to load them onto a computer. Once you have zoomed in, you can use the multi-controller to scroll around the image.

Dual image view allows you to compare images side-by-side, even compare images from the two different memory cards at the same time.

Cropping allows you to "trim" your images inside the camera. Adjusting the green box on your image lets you see you new area and allows you to keep or change your aspect ratio.

Resize lets you save a smaller copy of an image that is already on the memory card. This is an easy way to make smaller, shareable copies of your images that are ready for social media and/or email.

Videos can be played back on the LCD screen as well as any 4K/HDTV with the assistance of an optional HDMI cable. The camera offers frame-by-frame control, letting you see every detail. Audio is also available on the camera or with an optional headset when not viewing on a HDTV.

Frame grab allows you to save an individual frame from a video as a still image.

The 5D Mark IV even offers some basic trimming features so you can cut out the access from your videos.
