Playback Screens & Menus

Please excuse the quality of our screen samples, the 500HS only displays images with no information while in playback mode when hooked up via the USB/AV cable.

Hitting the playback button on the back of the camera takes you to the last image captured/stored on the SD card. Here you can use the arrows on the side of the screen or slide our finger from side of the screen to the other to scroll through your images. Tapping the DISP. icon allows you to change the amount of information on the screen.

The index mode can be accessed by either pressing the zoom lever to the wide end or tapping the index icon on the LCD screen. In index mode you can look at thumbnails of your images in groups of 6, 12, 48 or 130 images at a time.

Pressing the zoom lever to the telephoto end allows you to zoom in on your images. Once you have zoomed in, you can use your finger to move around the image.

Cropping or Trimming your image allows you to correct or adjust the composition on the camera without having to capture another image. You can zoom in "trim" off the edges of the image to adjust your image.

Resize allows you to save a new, smaller copy of your image. This is great for quickly resizing your images for email and uploading to the web.

Rotate allows you to change the orientation of the image by 90° at a time.

To view your captured movies, you just have to press on the play button in the middle of the screen. During the playback of the movie there is no information displayed on the screen.
