Adjusting the Instant Review Time

After you take a picture, it automatically appears briefly on the camera monitor. By default, the instant-review period lasts just two seconds. But you can customize this behavior via the Review Time option on the Playback menu, as shown in Figure 4-1.

Your choices are as follows:

1 Select one of three specific review periods: 2, 4, or 8 seconds.

1 Select Off to disable the automatic instant review altogether.

Why would you do so? Because you can't take any new pictures until the review period ends, which can hamper your ability to capture action. (You can still view your pictures by pressing the Playback button. See the next section for details.)

1 Select Hold to display the current image indefinitely — or, at least until the camera automatically shuts itself off to save power or you put your eye up to the viewfinder, which automatically turns off the monitor. (See the Chapter 1 section about Setup Menu 1 to find out about the autoshutdown and auto-display-off features.)
