Playback Screens & Menus

Pressing the Play button will bring up the last image or video captured on the LCD. Sliding the projector lens cover down will do the same, however the image will be projected instead of showing up on the LCD screen. All the onscreen information will be the same. You can see indicators for date and time the image was captured, battery level, file number, resolution, and the image number / total number of images. Pressing the OK button will add this image to your favorites.

Pressing the zoom lever to the "wide" end enter the camera into index mode. Once in index mode, you can choose between 4, 9 or 16 thumbnail views to help you quickly search through your images. Pressing it a forth time brings up the calendar view.

Moving the zoom control to the telephoto position when viewing a still image enters the magnify option. You can magnify an image up to 10x, and then scroll around inside the image using the 4-way controller. Pressing the menu button at any point allows you to save the magnified portion as a cropped image.
