Playback Screens & Menus
Pressing the MENU button while in Play mode brings up the following options:
MULTI - Display an index of six smaller images (see below)
PROTECT - Protect images against accidental erasure
ERASE - Delete current image
ALL ERASE - Delete all images.
The second page of options includes:
ROTATE - Rotate portrait mode images for proper
display on a television set
AUTO PLAY - Begins the sideshow function
PRINT - Set DPOF printing information.
To examine images during playback on the small 1.5" screen there is a 2X zoom
option that magnifies the image and allows you to scroll around using the 4-way
This is the Index mode where you can quickly search through stored images to find
one to playback full screen.
This is the menu that is accessed when you put the mode dial into the SETUP position.
I'm sure the options are pretty much self-explanatory so I won't bother detailing
