Pentax Optio E60 Review
Playback Modes & Menu Options
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. Here you can see all of the display options. The extended information screen has icons for image
size/quality, ISO, shutter speed and aperture used. Pressing "down" on the 4-way controller brings up the Edit/Playback menu (shown below).
In playback the Wide Zoom control button brings up the thumbnail index of all photos taken. You can now quickly
search through the stored images and select one for full screen playback. Press it again and the
calendar mode is displayed, allowing you to select your photographs by the date in which they were taken.
Once you have a photo selected for full screen playback you can magnify an image up to 10x in various
steps by pressing the telephoto zoom control. Now you can check the photo for critical focus, etc. and see
if you need to re-shoot the subject or not. Using the 4-way selector allows you to move around inside the enlarged image.
Edit/Playback menu options:
Slide show - Set up a slide show (Interval, Screen Effect, Sound Effect)
In camera resizing is achieved through just a few menu options. This is easier than trying to learn a photo
editing software program and great for beginners.
Many times we look at photos we have taken and discover we did not do a good job at composing or maybe we took
a bad photo but would like to salvage a portion of the image. Here you can see the CROP image option. Again, no
need for a software program and a computer.
Movies are played back in fullscreen mode in the camera with sound provided though the built-in
speaker. You can play a movie frame by frame, pause, fast
forward, or rewind with the 4-Way Selector.
