Playback Screens & Menus

Please excuse the poor quality of these screen captures. The WB850F kit does not include an AV output cable, therefore we had to photograph the display screen.

As you're reviewing images in Playback mode, you can press the DISP button to see information about your images, including GPS info (if GPS was enabled when the shot was taken) and a histogram, as shown here.

From the single-image view Playback mode, you can move into an Index mode, where you can see thumbnails of some of the images stored on the memory card. Pressing the zoom ring to the left (wide angle) brings up the Index mode, where you can see three images, a 3-by-5 grid, or a 5-by-8 grid of images, depending on how many times you press the zoom ring. The WB850F also allows you to see only images taken on a particular date, as shown along the bottom of these screens.

If you press the zoom ring to the right (the same direction as for telephoto) with a single image displayed on the Playback screen, it allows you to magnify that single image. You can then see close-up details of your images, ensuring that the focus is as sharp as you want. Thanks to the high-quality AMOLED screen with the WB850F, you can see precise details of each image.

You also have the option of cropping the image to what's currently on the screen, once you've magnified it. The WB850F will create a new image when you use this crop feature, allowing you to keep the old image safe. You can use the four-way button to shift what's visible of the magnified image, and you can zoom up to 14.4x magnification.

You also have a quite a large number of options for editing the images inside the camera when using Playback mode. Just press the Menu button when the image you want to edit is displayed on the screen. For example, you can add any of the Smart Filter options after you've shot the image, and the WB850F will create a new image with these features; saving the original untouched.

  • Resize - 2592x1944, 1984x1488, or 1024x768
  • Rotate - Off, Right 90 degrees, Left 90 degrees, or 180 degrees
  • Smart Filter - Off, Miniature, Vignetting, Ink Painting, Oil Painting, Cartoon, Cross Filter, Sketch, Soft Focus, Fish-eye, Classic, Retro, or Zooming Shot
  • Image Adjust - Off, Red-eye Fix, Face Retouch, Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, and Add Noise

WB850F GIF photo sharing.gif
With Samsung having included Wi-Fi networking capabilities with the WB850F, you have quite a few different options for sending your photos wirelessly to other people or to specific social media sites. Your options include: Wi-Fi Direct, Facebook, Picasa, YouTube, Photobucket, Email, and SkyDrive.

WB850F slideshow menu.jpg
Thanks to the high quality of the AMOLED screen included with the WB850F, you may want to set up a slide show to run on the camera. You can even add music to your slide show, although it doesn't sound very good when played through the camera's tiny speaker. You have a few different menu control options for running a slide show, including:

  • Start - Play or Repeat
  • Images - All, Date, or Select
  • Interval (grayed out)
  • Effect - Off, Calm, Shine, Relax, Lively, or Sweet
  • Music - Off, The Flea Waltz, Chopsticks, Canon in D, Air on the G String, Cello Suite No. 1, or Nocturne

WB850F movie playback screen.jpg
The movie playback screen is pretty basic. Once you start the movie playback, you can fast forward or reverse by using the left and right buttons on the four-way button. When you pause the movie playback using the OK button, you then will have the option of capturing a still image from the movie or of trimming the movie at the point where it is paused. Each time you make an editing change like this, the WB850F will save your changes in a new image or movie file, so the old movie file is preserved.

WB850F GIF delete screens.gif
You have a few different options for deleting images when in Playback mode. With a single image on the screen, press the Trash button, and you'll be asked whether you want to delete this image or to make multiple deletions. If you select Multiple Delete, you'll may see a 3x5 index of thumbnails of your stored images. Placing checkmarks next to the images you want to delete and pressing the Trash button again allows you to remove the checked images.
