D800: how many pushes for a 1:1 view?

Hi,

How many pushes of the magnify button does it take for a 100% view in playback mode? And what do these 4x/8x/12x mean? 4x of what?

Thanks in advance.

Two down from maximum. Which is called Medium magnification in the f2 setting.

I can't answer how many for a 1:1 view, but I can say that no magnification is the entire picture on your LCD and 2 x is zoomed in so the entire image is twice the size of your LCD, etc.

But your question is very interesting. Why don't manufacturers put on a 1:1 zoom option on the LCD as that has got to be, by far, the most popular view for jobbing photographers.

Nine presses = 100%  Or as iJosst wrote, just go to max and bump down by 2.

You can configure the central button of the multiselector to zoom at 100% on your reproduced image. That's function F2, choosing zoom as the custom function for the central button, and then "medium enlargement" which turns to be 100%. I always found that trick very valuable to check for basic sharpness, although one must bear in mind that we are looking at a simple JPG.

Got mine set up the same way, i use it almost all the time

Turning the front control wheel scrolls trough (potential) faces.
