Image review display
Although the D1H has a dedicated PLAY mode selectable on the mode dial (top of camera) all play functions are now available in immediate record review (straight after the shot is taken) and monitor review (press the MONITOR button - rear of camera). There is now no longer a distinction or lack of functionality in any play mode (a good thing). The D1H offers a variety of image review options along with different information overlaid, each page of information is accessed by pressing the 4-way controller to the right (or left). By default their are four different information pages, although this can be extended to six by selecting the histogram / highlights option in the play menu.
|Image Review Page 1
(folder number and file number)
|Image Review Page 2
(frame count, folder name, file name,
date, time, image size, image quality)
|Image Review Page 3
(exposure information - see below)
|Image Review Page 4
(exposure information - see below)
Notable improvement: The now seamless play mode is very welcome, you'll hardly ever find yourself using the dedicated PLAY mode as the MONITOR button play mode offers all the same functionality, and of course the camera is always ready to shoot at the slightest touch of the shutter release.
NOTE: If the image was taken with a GPS unit attached a fifth GPS information page will be available which shows the Latitude, Longitude and Altitude at which the image was taken.
Total information available:
- Folder name / file name
- Date & Time image taken
- Image Size & Quality setting
- Camera name (Nikon D1H)
- Firmware version (in the case of the camera we reviewed v1.01)
- Metering mode
- Shutter speed
- Exposure mode
- Exposure compensation
- ISO Sensitivity
- White balance mode & fine tuning
- Tone setting
- Sharpness setting
- Focal length
- Colour mode (Mode1 = sRGB, Mode2 = Adobe RGB
Histogram and Highlights
As mentioned above two more pages can be accessed by changing the Display Mode option in the Play Menu. These two pages show highlight (areas of the image which are overexposed) and an image histogram.
|An example of the highlight view, overexposed areas of the image are highlighted with a blinking black animation.||An example of the histogram view, with the D1H the histogram is much larger and is displayed over the image rather than beside it.|
The D1H now has a magnify feature, it's accessed by pressing the FUNC button (default assignment) a single press enters the magnify view with a smaller 'overview' navigator shown in the bottom right of the display. The magnification appears to be approximately 300%. Use the 4-way controller to scroll around the image, after 2 seconds of inactivity the overview navigator disappears leaving the magnified region clear for closer inspection.
|FUNC has been pressed, overview navigator is visible.||After two seconds of inactivity the navigator disappears.|
Notable improvement: The D1 didn't have a magnify mode which did make it difficult to be able to tell if an image was sharp / well focused until it was loaded back onto a computer.
Delete and Protect
While reviewing an image it is possible to delete it by pressing the DEL button twice. The first press of the button displays the "Delete Images?" alert (seen below), the second confirms the action. The other single-button action is image protection, pressing the protect button while viewing an image will mark it as protected or remove the protection tag. This in effect sets the file system 'read only' flag against the image. It protects it against accidental deletion but not against card formatting.
|DEL has been pressed, press again to confirm the deletion.||The protect button has been pressed, the image is now protected against accidental deletion.|
Switch to a thumbnail view by holding the thumbnail button and rotating the command dial, this will switch between either the single image, a 2 x 2 thumbnail or 3 x 3 thumbnail view of images. In the thumbnail view you still have access to the delete, protect and magnify functions.
|2 x 2 thumbnail view||3 x 3 thumbnail view|
