Playback Screens & Menus

Pressing the play button on the back of the camera enters it into playback mode, allowing you to view your images and videos on the camera's 3.0-inch LCD screen. The info button allows you to change the amount of information that is shown about each image, including RGB histograms.

On the back you will find an index/-magnification button, which while in playback mode will enter the camera into its index mode. Here you can view either 4 or 9 thumbnails of the images stored on the SD card. This allows for faster searching for images.

Pressing the +magnification button allows you to zoom in on an image. Once you have zoomed in, you can change the magnification with the +/- buttons, and use the 4-way controller to scroll around the image.

Pressing the "Q button in playback mode brings up this menu, allowing you to edit and protect images, much like that of a compact digicam.

All of your recorded videos can be played back on the camera. Here you can see the camera's DVR-Like controls that give you frame by frame control. Sound will also be heard through a small built-in speaker. With the camera's HDMI and A/V outputs it is easy to hook the camera up to any available to TV for viewing as well.

Canon has also included some basic video editing features on the camera, so you can cut and crop your videos without using a computer.
