Playback Screens & Menus

Please excuse the poor quality of these screen captures. The X-M1 kit does not include an AV output cable, therefore we had to photograph the display screen.

Playback - main GIF.gif
Press the Playback button on the back of the X-M1 to open the Playback function, through which you can see all of the images stored on the memory card.

With a single image on the screen, you'll see the date and time the image was recorded in the lower portion of the screen. Along the bottom of the screen, the X-M1 will display the shutter speed, aperture, and ISO settings. The file name is located along the top right of the screen, as is the resolution.

Press the Disp button on the back of the camera to open the Detail Information popup menu along the bottom of the screen. Select Off to remove all of the data from the screen.

Press Disp again to highlight the Favorites command. Press Disp one more time to see quite a bit of extensive information about the image. The X-M1 will display the image in a small box in the upper right corner with the histogram underneath it. Along the left side of the window, you'll see information including (from top to bottom) the dynamic range setting, resolution, ISO, shutter speed, film simulation, flash mode, white balance, and exposure value. The date and time is in the lower left corner.

Press Disp one more time to return to the standard playback screen.

Playback - Grid GIF.gif
It's pretty easy to scroll through a large number of images that are stored on the memory card using the X-M1's thumbnail grid display option. With a single image displayed on the screen, twist the main command dial either right or left to move to the next stored picture.

Or to scroll through images more quickly, twist the sub-command dial to the left to bring a 2x2 grid to the screen. Continue turning the sub-command dial to the left to move to a 3x3 grid and a 10x10 grid. With the grids on the screen, use the main command dial or the four-way button to scroll through the stored images. Press Menu/OK with one of the photos in the grid highlighted to bring that image to the full screen.

Twist the sub-command dial back to the right to shrink the grid.

Playback - zoom GIF.gif
The X-M1's Playback mode includes a Magnify function, through which you can zoom into a portion of your saved images, ensuring sharpness. To use the magnify function, twist the sub-command dial to the right with a single image on the screen. You'll see a small white box in the lower right corner that shows the overall image and a bar in the upper left corner that indicates the current level of magnification. Use the four-way button to change which portion of the magnified image you can see.

While in Playback mode, press the X-M1's Menu button to open the Playback Menu. There are three screens for the Playback Menu, and they're indicated by the three green tabs on the far left of the screen, marked with playback icons. The Playback Menu commands are:

Playback - movie GIF.gif
When viewing a movie in Playback mode, you can view a little bit of information about the movie's settings. On the main movie screen, you'll see the file name and movie resolution icon in the upper right corner and the date and time the movie recorded in the lower left corner.

Press the downward four-way button to begin playing the movie on the X-M1's LCD screen. Press the upward four-way button to pause or stop the movie playback.

Press the Disp button to remove all of the data from the screen. Press Disp again see more detailed information, including a histogram in the lower right corner. Along the left side, you'll see the movie resolution, film simulation setting, white balance, and EV setting, along with the date and time the movie was recorded.
