Playback Screens & Menus

Pressing the Playback button on the back of the camera allows you to view the images that have been stored on the camera's memory. The DISP. button allows you to change the amount of information that is shown about each image, from just the image to a full color histogram and image details.

Index mode lets you view thumbnails of the images stored on the camera. This lets you search quickly for the special images that you are looking for. You can enter index mode by either turning the command dial on the back or touching the index icon on the LCD screen.

Along with the index mode, you can also select the calendar view. Here you can choose to view the images that were captured on a certain date.

Turning the command dial the other way allows you to zoom in on an image up to 16x. Once you have zoomed in, you can use the 4-way controller to scroll around the image.
