Camera INFO display
Camera information, pressing the INFO button with no reviewed image displays a quick view of current camera configuration. In this example:
Current Date / Time, No AEB, No WB-BKT, Standard Parameters, 4 sec Info Review, No flash compensation, 4 min power off, Auto rotate on, Kelvin WB set to 5200 K, 31.9 MB free on CF card, ISO 1600.
Review after shutter release
If enabled the EOS-10D will provide a review of the image shot immediately after the shutter release. This can be either a full screen image or an information view with a thumbnail of the image, a histogram and exposure information. As the EOS-10D is a 'shooting priority' camera a half-press of the shutter release will always cancel this display.
|If you have the Review option set to On this is the kind of display you'll get after taking a shot, a simple full screen image with no overlaid information.||With review set to On (Info) you'll get more detailed information. A smaller version of the image with overexposed areas highlighted (blinking), a histogram and exposure information.|
|During this instant review you can choose to delete the image before it's "saved" by pressing the erase button directly below the LCD monitor.|
The play button is used to enter the EOS-10D's play mode, from here you can browse through your images (roll the quick control dial), examine under magnification or organize (delete) your images. As with record review a half or full press of the shutter release immediately cancels play mode.
|Press the play button to display the last image taken (or the last image on the CF card). The EOS-10D uses a 'rough image' technique to provide you with a very quick impression of the image, it then takes just under two seconds to replace this with a finer detailed image.||Press the info button to switch to the detailed histogram and exposure information view. Note that overexposed areas of the image are highlighted (blinking).|
|Press the enlarge (AF point select) button to magnify the image, the first level of magnification is 1.5x, there are ten further magnification levels up to 10x.||Here we can see a 10x magnified image, use the quick control dial to pan around the image, press the direction switch button to change between vertical and horizontal panning.|
|Press reduce / thumbnail (AE lock) button to switch to a thumbnail index view. Browse through images using the quick control dial.||Press the JUMP button to switch to jump mode where you flip through pages of nine images at a time. I think this could have been implemented more logically by another press of the reduce button.|
|Note you can also use JUMP mode with just a single image displayed.|
