Record Review

You can set the D70 to display a review of the image immediately after you take the shot. The camera has several different play modes and record review uses the last mode selected, for example if you were in thumbnail play mode record review will appear in this mode.


Pressing the play button displays the last image shot (or the last image in the CF Card). Press the 4-way controller left or right to view up to five 'pages' of image information (including exposure details, histogram etc.). Press the 4-way controller up or down to browse through images, this very fast but again would have been nice if the main or sub command dials could be set to also perform this function.

1: Folder, File name, Image size, Image quality 2: Detail - Camera, Date, Tim, Metering, Shutter speed, Aperture, Exposure Mode, Exp. compen, Flash exp. compen., Focal length, Flash mode
3: Detail - Image development, ISO sensitivity, White Balance, White Balance Fine Tune, Image size, Image quality, Sharpness, Tone, Color Mode, Hue, Saturation 4: Highlights (note the blinking areas aren't necessarily completely overexposed but are 'near')
5: Histogram overlay  

Protect / Delete

Press the delete button to display the 'Delete?' prompt, press once more to delete the image Press the protect button to protect (small key icon appears) or unprotect an image

Playback Magnification

Press ENTER to switch to magnification mode, the level of magnification used depends on the last level used. Hold down the thumbnail button to display a small 'overview' image in the bottom right corner of the frame, with this you can resize and reposition the loupe (using the main command dial and 4-way controller), once you release the thumbnail button the newly selected area is displayed.
