Record Review

You can choose for the M8 to display a review of the image taken immediately after shutter release, if enabled you can set the display duration (1 to 5 seconds) and the display type (either single image or single image with histogram). During record review you can also press the DELETE button to quickly delete the image.

Play display

Press the PLAY button to enter Play mode, by default this shows a single image with simply the frame counter at the top right and the protect icon at the top left (if set). Press INFO to switch to the detailed information display which has a smaller version of the image, a histogram and exposure information. The histogram type can be set between brightness (luminance) or RGB and you can also optionally enable the display of clipping (enabled below, the red areas in the image). In INFO mode you can still magnify and the histogram will reference only the magnified portion [clip].
