Playback Screens & Menus

Pictured is the basic playback screen with no information displayed. At 230,000-dot resolution, this LCD is adequate, but does not offer the thrilling details and color saturation of higher-resolution screens.

Pressing upward on the four-way control (labeled "info") adds basic information to the playback display: date/time and image number.

An addition press of the "info" button adds histogram information and detailed camera settings to the display.

Photo surf mode is a handy way to whiz through a strip of images (shown at the bottom of the screen) using the small thumb wheel. However, you have to select this mode from the playback menu (you can't access it simply by pressing the "info" button again). In addition, the zoom ring is disabled in this mode, so you cannot zoom in to inspect an image nor zoom out to see an index page, as shown below.

The first index view (accessed by selecting 'zoom out' on the zoom ring) shows 12 images.

Zooming out again increases the number of photos on the index page to 30.

The zoom ring lets you magnify images considerably in playback mode, but the basic resolution of the LCD limits your ability to critically inspect the focus.

Movie playback offers the same three information display options as still images. During playback you can adjust audio volume using the thumb wheel.
