Back Side: Play Back

Next up is our playback button, and there's a whole bunch of different controls that take place once we get the camera into the playback mode, so playback plays back the last image we can then go to the previous or the next image going left and right on the camera. We can also control that with the front dialled on the camera. If you want more shooting information, you can simply press up repeatedly and you'll Seymour information about that particular shot. And if you want to change the display options, you compress the display options on the back of the camera. And if you want, you can also use the joystick to change some of those controls as well. And then you can also use the dial to zoom in and out to check for focusing. And if you press, it'll go to the focusing spot. And so they actually one more. And, of course, we have our garbage can for deleting our images. Actually, one more. If you hold down the playback button, it'll switch between card number one and card number two. Beca...

use this camera takes two cards, it's usually only working with one card at a time, and that's the cards you're looking at. It will show you on the back of the camera and you can switch between those two cards. So let me do a little demo here with my camera. And what I want to do first is I want to go ahead and take a photo and you'll see that our subjects are off to the side here. So I'm gonna move my focusing point off to the side, and the camera's gonna focus in it becomes agreeing. And I'm gonna go ahead and take a photo. Now I'm gonna play back that photo. So this is the photo that's played back. And if I want to zoom in by pressing in on this button, it doesn't zoom in on the center of the frame, zooms in exactly where the frame waas, and so it's gonna be generally pretty quick to go in and take a look. And so now I can scroll around by using the little joystick. I can also use the four way controller on the back of the camera to see what's going on. And then if I want to change the magnification, I consume this back and forth, or I can just press the button. Now if I press up, we're gonna go in and be able to see the shutter speed aperture and the various other settings that we have, along with the hissed a gram. Additional information about how our cameras set in the metadata that's going along with it. And so it just simply cycles through those different modes. Now the display back button will turn off that information. So if we want to see a just a straight clean image, we can see that we can go back to this image. And, uh, next we're gonna get to a rating system where we can rate images. If we think that's a pretty good image, we can give it two stars, for instance, and so a variety of options and just keep pressing those display buttons to cycle through the different modes. If we don't like it, we can hit the garbage can button, and they ended up throwing that into the garbage. And so that's a little bit on the playback modes. Pretty simple. Let me do shit. Let me let me go back and show you on the memory cards and So let's go ahead. Make sure that were played back. We're in the playback mode. Hit the display button. And if you can see up here on the top, it's fairly light. But you can see number one is highlighted. So we are in the first card. Now, I do have two cards in this camera. When I hold down on the play button for a couple seconds, it is switched to card slot number two and you'll see Number two is highlighted over number one. And so now I have card. Only have a couple of images in with card number two right now. And this does not switch Which card you are writing to this simply switches which card you are playing back. So if I want to switch back to card number one, I'm gonna holding on the play. And it just told me that I had switched to slot number one. And so once again, it switches the playback folders for us. Which card you're looking at, and if you want to switch which card you're recording to, we're gonna be doing that in the menu system itself a little bit later in the class. Now If you are playing back a video, the controls work a little bit differently. The downward button is your play and pause button, left and right are going to be your fast forward and rewind and up will be your stop button. And if you need to adjust the volume, you can do that by pressing the button in the middle of the camera and tell you what. Let's go ahead and we'll do a quick little video here. So on my camera I am going to We'll do a very, very simple shot here. And because my function button is my panning, I am going to start recording right now, and I will just simply do a little pan back and pan. I guess I'm not panning back. I'm zooming out zooming, and I'll go ahead and hit the function button again to stop recording. I'm gonna hit playback. And if you recall a still image look like this video image has little frame are the holes on the side. The sprocket holes on the side and it tells us right there to play down, and you can hear me talking because it's got microphones in it. I can back up Going left. Aiken Lips. Get this done right. Playback. Where's my video? There we go. Play. If I want to pause I composite, I can stop it, which kind of resets the whole thing so I can delete it. But I can press play fast forward, and I can rewind through it as well. And I can go frame by frame by putting it in the pause. If I want a posit, Aiken, go frame by frame and go slow motion essentially in there. Now if I need to adjust the volume, I can hit the button in the middle, the okay button and then I can raise the volume and lower the volume according to my needs. And then OK, when I'm done, press, play, press stop, Let's play and I'm done with that. So a little bit on plane back videos

I have the X Pro 2 for over a year and I thought that I might get more information on how to use it more efficiently. Boy this is a great course! I learned a lot and I loved the hidden feature :) Highly appreciated John and CL!

A comprehensive walk through of the X-Pro 2. John did a great job of going through each and every setting on the camera and gave lots of helpful tips and tricks that I never would have known about had I relied solely on the manual.
