Canon Powershot A720 IS Review
Playback Modes & Menus
When you select Playback mode the last picture taken is displayed. You can move backward or
forward through the images using the LEFT and RIGHT buttons. The amount of overlay information
displayed is controlled by pressing the DISP button. Information across the bottom is 3/5
which means image 3 of 5 total. The image quality used
"SuperFine/Large" and the time and date it was captured are also displayed. If you press the DISP button again all of the overlay information is removed. This is
good for when you are showing the pictures on the TV and don't want the info displayed.
You can quickly search through stored images using the Index playback function
which is actuated by pressing the Wide zoom control button. Nine thumbnail size
images will be displayed and you can select one using the LEFT or RIGHT buttons
and then pressing the Telephoto zoom button only, the set/func button does not work. Pressing the Wide button again will
put you in jump mode where you can backward or forward a page at a time.
The image can be magnified up to 10x in ten steps by pressing the telephoto zoom button.
Once the image is enlarged at any step, you can move around inside of it using the 4-way
Movie clips can be played in the camera with audio thanks to the built-in speaker.
Press the FUNC. / SET button to play a clip.
You get "VCR-like" buttons to control the playback.
