The Everyday Sling might just be the perfect pack for not carrying too much gear, combining comfort with Peak Design's signature modern style.
The EOS-1Ds features five different types of display in playback mode. For record review (the image displayed immediately after the shot is taken) you can select from either of the first two views shown below (Single or Single with Histogram). When shooting a burst of continuous shots the EOS-1Ds will by default display the last frame of the burst, however if you press the DISPLAY button while the camera is writing images it will display each image as it is saved.
Enter playback mode by pressing the DISPLAY button. In playback mode the default display is 'single image', each of the other displays can be selected in play mode (press the DISPLAY button) by holding the DISPLAY button and rotating the main dial. The new Enlarged feature is accessed by holding the DISPLAY button and pressing the AF Assist button once.
Note: Apologies for the average quality of these captures (compared to our usual), the EOS-1Ds does not have a video-out connector and so LCD captures must be made by taking a picture of the LCD screen.

When scrolling through images in one of the thumbnail views images 'scroll on' from the bottom right or top left corner (depending on the direction). It may also have been useful if there were a way to scroll through a page of four or nine images at a time.
