Playback Screens & Menus

Note: the PL210 kit does not include an AV cable, therefore we had to photograph the LCD for the screens below.

Pressing the "Play" button on the back of the camera enters it into playback mode. The amount of display information can be changed by pressing UP or the DISP button on the 4-way controller. Left and Right on the 4-way controller allow you to scroll through your images.

While in Playback mode, zooming to the wide end enters the camera into index mode. Here you can quickly scroll through your images in groups of 1, 9 or 20 images at a time.

Zooming to the Telephoto end allows you to zoom in on an image up to 13.5x. You can then use the 4-way controller to scroll through the image. By pressing "OK" while zoomed in, you can crop the image and save a new image with just what you see on the screen.

Playback Menu:
  • Edit - Resize, Rotate, Smart , and Image Adjust
  • Multi Slide Show - Start a slide show
  • File Options - Delete, Protect, add a voice memo, set DPOF options or copy images from internal memory to the SD/SDHC card

Resize allows you to make a smaller copy of an image without the need for a computer. Making this selection allows you to save a 5M, 3M or 1M copy. This is an easy and fast way to make a small copy for email or uploading to the web.

You can play back your movies on the camera's LCD screen. Here you can see that pressing the "OK" button allows you to pause and play the movie. Pressing down allows you to capture a screen image from within a movie.
