This option, also detailed in Chapter 5, enables you to produce a brighter or darker image than the camera's autoexposure meter thinks appropriate. If you applied exposure compensation when you take a picture, the compensation amount appears to the right of the f-stop during playback. Otherwise, this area of the display is empty.

Figure 4-10: The most basic Playback mode displays your image with minimal shooting information.

✓ Protect: Using the Protect feature, described later in this chapter, you can "lock" an image to prevent it from being erased when you use the camera's Erase function. (Formatting the memory card does delete the picture, however, so use caution.) If you protect the photo, a little key icon appears next to the Exposure Compensation value.

✓ Folder number and last four digits of file number: See Chapter 1 for information about how the camera assigns folder and file numbers.

From Single Image mode, press the DISP button again to shift to a mode called Single Image Plus Quality.

Now you get two additional pieces of information, as shown in Figure 4-11:

✓ Image number/total images: This pair of values shows you the current image number and the total number of images on the memory card. For example, in Figure 4-11, you see picture 16 out of 38. (Don't confuse the image number with the actual file number; again, the last four digits of the file number appear in the top-right corner of the display, along with the folder number.)

✓ Quality setting: This setting, covered in Chapter 3, determines the image resolution (pixel count) and file format (JPEG or Raw).

The Quality symbols shown during playback are the same ones used to indicate the Quality setting on the camera menus and Shooting Settings screen. Figure 4-11 shows the symbol that represents the Large/Fine setting. Chapter 3 has a chart to help you decode the other symbols.

To view additional details about the settings you used to take a picture, switch to Shooting Information display mode or Histogram display mode. The next sections explain how to interpret the data that appears in these two modes.
