Nikon Coolpix S230 Review

Playback Modes & Menu Options

Since the touch screen is used to navigate the options and menus on the camera, we were not able to capture many of the normal screen shots.

The Review button brings up the last image captured in full screen mode with some information overlaid. Pressing the OK button in the center of the 4-way controller toggles the amount of exposure information displayed with an image.

(Because of the touch screen navigation we had to take a picture of the menu, please excuse the quality.)

Edit/Playback menu options:

    Print Set - Set images on the camera to be printed
    Slide show - Set up a slide show (Interval, Screen Effect, Sound Effect)
    Delete - Delete images from the camera
    Protect - Protect image from deletion; On or Off
