Playback Modes & Screens

During playback you can control the amount of information that is overlayed on the LCD (or EVF) by pressing the INFO button on the back of the camera. We start out with the default information here in the first frame.

Pressing the INFO button toggles the display of all camera and exposure data.

And pressing the INFO button again clears off most all screen data altogether.

For critical inspection of focus or color there is a 3x playback zoom feature. The camera magnifies the image in small increments each time you toggle the zoom control switch to the telephoto position. You can step back by using the zoom control in the wideangle position. Once the image has been magnified you can freely scroll around inside of it by using the 4-way selector switch.

The playback index mode can be set for 4, 9 or 16 thumbnail images per screen. You can quickly search through your stored images and then display one fullscreen when desired.

When viewing a sequential capture only the first frame will be displayed. To see the other images captured during the sequence you press the Drive button on top of the camera.

The same applies to viewing the index thumbnails. Only the first frame's thumbnail is displayed, you press the Drive button to enter the "extend" mode and then all of the thumbnails in the sequence are displayed.
