Playback Screens & Menus

Note: The Cyber-Shot DSC-TX7 does not output all of the available screen information or menu options when using the video out feature in Playback mode (with the included camera dock). Therefore, our playback mode screen captures are limited. We feel Sony chose to handle video output this way to allow for better picture sharing with your friends and family when viewing images and video on a standard television or HDTV.

Here you can see the playback screen with no extra information. On the LCD itself you will see all the info/buttons, but as mentioned above, they are not shown when using the A/V cables in Play mode.

Here you can see an example of the onscreen information in playback mode. We were able to glitch the camera into displaying this for a split second and captured the above (after several tries).

Above is the Index display, which is activated by either pressing the Wide zoom control or touching the index icon on the LCD screen. Here, the TX7 will display 28 small thumbnails of files stored on your Memory Stick (or the internal memory), allowing you to quickly search through stored images/movies.

Pressing the Wide zoom control again will bring up the Calendar display, which separates files by the dates captured.


You can also magnify images for critical inspection. This function is activated by either double-tapping the LCD or using the Telephoto zoom control. Once enlarged, you simple touch the screen and drag your finger tip to scroll around inside the frame.


The Playback menu offers a great deal of in-camera functions, such as entering Easy mode, Paint, Retouch images, Display a burst group, Toggle the viewing mode, Protect files, choose DPOF (Direct Print Order Format) settings, Print a photo (when plugged into a printer), Rotate an image, set the Volume, Edit the Display settings and amount of Exposure Data, Choose the number of photos shown when using the Index function (12 or 28), etc.
