Playback Screens & Menus

Pressing the playback button on the back of the camera allows you to view all of the images that are saved on the camera's SD card. Again the DISP button allows you to change the amount of information that is shown on the LCD screen or EVF. Anywhere from no info to the full gamut of the shooting settings, including a full color histogram, can be shown about each captured image.

Pressing down on the 4-way controller takes you to the camera's image index mode. Here you are able to see and search thumbnails of the images that are saved on the memory card. This provides a fast and easy way to search through a large number of images quickly. On the left side is an option to search via date or file type to greatly increase your searching speed.

The AF/MF - AEL lock button in playback mode allows you to zoom in on a single image. Here you can check focus and detail without having a large computer screen. Once you have zoomed in, you can use the 4-way controller to scroll around the image. The zoom key located at the bottom left of the screen shows you the portion of the image you are currently viewing.

Play menu options:
  • Delete - Remove files from the memory card
  • View Mode - Date View, Folder View (still), Folder View (MP4), AVCHD View
  • Image Index - Enter the Index playback function
  • Display Rotation - Auto, Manual, Off
  • Slide Show - Start an automated slide show

One touch of the Fn button in playback mode allows you to upload images to a connected smartphone. This option even allows you to choose images ahead of time so they are ready when a smartphone is connected.

Basic editing controls allow you to change a few things about an image while it is still on the camera. Above you can see the rotate option, which allows you to change the orientation of an image 90° at a time.

All of your captured videos can be played back on the camera's LCD screen. Audio is also played back on a tiny built-in speaker. The camera gives you frame-by-frame control over your videos, in which any frame can be saved as a jpeg. With an optional HDMI cable, your Full 1080p HD videos and 4K videos can be played back on the appropriate HDTV/4K TV just by connecting them. All still images can also be viewed this way.
