Display and menus contd.
|The most basic display in playback mode shows the file number and image quality setting briefly for each frame.||Pressing the DISP button adds further information; file size and exposure / white balance / ISO settings.|
|Pressing the DISP button again changes the display to show a histogram.||The left zoom button switches to a thumbnail display.|
|Unusually you can choose between 2x2, 3x3, 4x4 or 5x5 thumbnails, all perfectly usable thanks to that large, crystal-clear screen.||The right zoom button magnifies the image in seven steps, up to 8.0x.|
|The playback menu has four tabs - play, edit, card and 'album entry'. The four directional keys on the four-way controller are used to select each option.||Pressing the 'up' key brings up a page of slide show options; there's four nice transition effects and the option for some rather groovy background music.|
|The Stylus 800 offers a fairly sophisticated way of organizing the images on your xD card into 'albums', complete with natty ring-bound frame effects. How useful this is will depend on how long you intend to keep the images on the card I guess.||You can also browse images by date using this very attractive calendar view.|
|The right arrow key takes you to the play mode menu, which has four tabs. The first, PLAY, (shown above) has image rotation, DPOF printing and voice annotation options.||The card menu is the same as found in record mode with the addition of a 'backup' option, for copying images from the internal memory to an xD card.|
|In the setup menu (otherwise the same as the one found in record mode) you can opt for a 2x2, 3x3, 4x4 or 5x5 thumbnail view.||One unusual feature of the Stylus Verve is in-camera image editing. Here you can automatically remove red-eye (which works pretty well), convert images to black & white or sepia, or resize them. In each case a new file is created, so you won't lose the original.|
