Playback Screens & Menus

Pressing the playback button on the back of the camera allows you to see all of the images that are saved on the camera's memory. The amount of information that is shown on the LCD screen can be changed by going into the "Display" settings in the Setup menu.

With no zoom lever, the index mode can be accessed by first pressing the "OK" button to access the index/zoom option. Then turning the command dial to the left takes you to index mode.Here you will see thumbnails of all of the images that are saved on the camera's memory.

Turning the command dial to the right allows you to zoom in on any of the images. This is a great way to check focus or details in your images. Once you have zoomed in, you can use the 4-way controller to scroll around the image.
