Casio QV-5700 Review
Playback Modes & Screens
Flipping the mode dial to Play will display the last image captured full screen as
shown above. Pressing the DISP button will cycle between this display and the
next frames with exposure information and a histogram.
Here you can see a histogram which displays the dynamic range of
the captured image as indicated by the black to white bar underneath.
The exposure mode (P, A, S, M, AUTO), the drive mode (single or continuous),
the metering mode (multi, center or spot), the flash mode, the
aperture value, shutter speed and image file sizes.
If you press
the DISP button again all of the overlay info is removed, this is useful when doing
a slideshow on a TV screen.
If you push the zoom control lever to the wideangle position during playback it
toggles the thumbnail index mode. Nine small images are displayed per screen and
you can move the arrow to the desired image to quickly display it fullscreen.
If you push the zoom control lever to the telephoto position it enlarges the image up to
4x in 11 steps. Once enlarged you can scroll around the image to check for
critical focus, composition or color.
The QV-4000 has a builtin orientation feature that will auto-rotate portrait mode
images during playback. The rotated image appears on the color LCD or a TV set if
connected to the Video Out port.
The QuickTime movies can also be displayed in the camera. Once you start playback it
can be started, stopped or paused and you can move forward
or backward one frame at a time using the 4-way selector switch.
While displaying a large image you can press a button and
resize it down to the smaller 640 x 480 size.
