Setup Menu (contd.)

Playback Volume

Playback volume controls the volume of sound played back for movie clips. There is no voice annotation mode on the G1.

In record mode this setting controls the volume of the fake shutter release sound (very Sony Mavica).

Auto Power Down

Auto Power Down controls the power down of the camera, when enabled the camera will automatically power down after three (3) minutes of inactivity to a "stand by" state where it can be woken with the press of the shutter release.

Date/Time

Set the internal camera clock along with display date format:

mm/dd/yyyy
dd/mm/yyyy
yyyy/mm/dd

Format

Format the CF card, displays current card usage (so you don't accidentally format the card full of images) and requires a selection of "OK" before it begins.

It's worth noting that this performs the equivalent of a "Quick Format" under Windows / DOS, simply wiping the FAT & Directory table without actually reformatting all blocks on the device.

Language

Select the menu language:

European G1 US G1
• English
• Deutsch
• Francais
• Nederland
• Dansk
• Suomi
• Italiano

• Svenska

Video System

Allows selection of output video system, useful for display on different TV systems.


Playback menu

Pressing the MENU button while in playback mode displays the play menu over the current image.

Single Erase

Enters single frame erase mode, in this mode the small trashcan icon is displayed in the top left corner of the display, you can use the left and right arrows to scroll through images and just press SET to delete an image. Press MENU to return to the playback menu.

Much easier than some...

Erase All

Erases all images on the CF card (or current folder). Does not erase protected images. Requires an OK confirmation to an OK / Cancel prompt.

Protect

Enters single frame protect mode, much the same as single frame delete mode the key icon is displayed in the top left corner of the display, you can use the left and right arrows to scroll through images and just press SET to protect/unprotect (set the file attribute to read-only) an image. Press MENU to return to the playback menu.

Rotate

Enters rotate mode (same operational style as delete / protect). Rotates an image by 90 degrees at a time (clockwise). It's worth noting that the JPEG file itself is not rotated but rather the orientation is stored in the JPEG header, this is only recognised correctly by Canon's own TWAIN driver.

Slide Show

Begins a slide show of all or selected images, you can select images from slide show mode and place them into one of three show groups, each image can be shown for between 3 and 30 seconds (or manually move to the next image using the remote control).

Images are shown with the current display settings (information overlaid or not).

Print Order

A DPOF compatible print order / number of copies tool which marks images for printing using a compatible DPOF printer / photo finishing booth.
