Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II Review
The Mark II has five different display modes for both record review and playback. When shooting a burst of continuous shots it 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 image playback mode by pressing the DISPLAY button. In playback mode the default display is 'single image', hold the DISPLAY button and rotate the main dial to change display mode. The selected display mode is also used for record review.
Shutter speed, Aperture, Image size / quality. Use the quick control dial and SELECT button to browse.
Shooting information (and histogram)
Four image index
|Nine image index
3 x 3 thumbnail display. Exposure and image size / quality information relates to currently selected image. Use the quick control dial and SELECT button to browse.
Use the quick control dial and SELECT button to choose current folder or create a new folder. Hold the memory card select button and turn the quick control dial to switch between CF and SD.
When browsing through images in the thumbnail views images will '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 (main control dial?).
