Hold the selected control to preview color, exposure, and depth of field while shooting landscapes.

Framing Grid Display

Use the selected control to quickly view the framing grid for landscape shots that keep verticals vertical and horizontals horizontal.

Playback Mode > Zoom On/Off

Use the button to quickly zoom in on the active focus point during playback and check whether your photos are in focus. To choose the zoom ratio, select Custom Setting f3 [OK button] > [Playback mode], highlight [Zoom on/off], and press .
