Playback Screens & Menus

When using the Nikon P900's AV output cable to record screen shots of the display screen, the aspect ratio defaults to 16:9, rather than the 4:3 aspect ratio of the camera's LCD, therefore some of these screens will look different on the camera's LCD screen than they look here.

Press the Playback button on the back of the Nikon P900 to enter Playback mode. With a single image displayed on the screen, press the Disp button (just to the right of the viewfinder) to change what's shown on the screen. Three different views are available:

  • No data
  • Limited data, including resolution, date and time shot, and file name
  • Detailed data, including the above items plus a histogram, shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, and exposure compensation.
You can scroll through images by pressing the right and left edges of the four-way button/ring, or you can spin the four-way ring to move through them more quickly.

Nikon included a thumbnail view option in Playback mode. With a single image on the screen, press the zoom ring to the left to see a thumbnail grid. Highlight an individual thumbnail and press the OK button to bring the thumbnail to a full screen view. The grid options available on the P900's LCD screen are 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, and 8x9. Press the zoom ring to the right to reduce the thumbnail grid.

Press the zoom ring to the left one more time on the 8x9 thumbnail grid, and you'll see a calendar screen, which sorts the images you've shot by the day they were recorded.

The Nikon P900's Playback mode also includes a magnify feature. With a single image on the screen, press the zoom ring to the right. You then can use the four-way button to shift the view on the display screen to a different area of the magnified image. Thirty levels of magnification are available, although it's tough to stop on a particular level of magnification because the zoom ring is very sensitive.

Playback - movie GIF.gif
With a movie displayed on the screen of the Nikon P900, you can see the video resolution in the lower right corner. Press the Disp button to add data to the screen, including the time and date recorded and file name in the lower left corner and the timed length of the video clip in the upper right corner.

Press the OK button to begin playing back the movie. Press OK again to pause the movie playback. With the movie paused, you'll have access to some movie playback tools along the lower left, including a stop button, rewind, play, fast forward, cut, and create still image from video clip.

From Playback mode, press the Menu button on the back of the camera to open the Playback menu. Make sure the Playback icon at the upper left of the screen is highlighted to see the options in the Playback menu, which include:
