Playback Screens & Menus

Pressing the playback button enters the camera into playback mode. The last image captured will be shown first. Pressing the DISP. button allows you to change the amount of information from no info to a full list of shooting information to a list of GPS coordinates and altitude info.

Pressing the zoom control to the wide end takes you into index mode. Here you can choose between 12 or 30 thumbnail images at a time to quickly search through your images. Pressing it again takes you to a calendar where you can see the images taken on a specific date.

Using the telephoto end 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 through the image.

In playback mode you have the option for Normal Playback, Slideshow, Filtered Playback and Calendar mode.
