To play back a movie you've shot with the T1i:
1. Press the Play button ('-) to go into Playback mode.
2. Use the left and right arrows to find the movie you want to play.
3. Press the Set button to activate a set of on-screen playback controls.
You can play back your video files on the T1i's LCD screen.
4. Use the arrow keys to select the button you want to press, and then click Set to activate it. For example, to play the movie, highlight the Play button (as shown above) and press Set.
During movie playback, you can adjust the volume of the movie by turning the Main dial. When watching movies on the camera, be aware that movies can be played only when shown at full screen size. If you've zoomed out to view a thumbnail display of multiple images and movies, you won't be able to access movie playback features.
You can view your movies on a TV monitor, just as you do with still images. Note, though, that if you have a monitor connected to the Rebel while you're shooting video, the image on the screen will be smaller than the actual image that's being recorded. Also, the TV will not play any sound from the movie. When you play back the image, though, it will play with sound, and at full size.

Although we usually tend to think of the digital camera as the best thing since sliced bread, there are both pros and cons with its use. Nothing is available on the market that does not have both a good and a bad side, but the key is to weigh the good against the bad in order to come up with the best of both worlds.
