Play Back Menu

So there is one other menu that we haven't talked about, and that is the playback menu. And in order to get to this, you need to hit the playback button and then hit the menu button. You will then have access to the playback menu in here. First option is being able to switch from slot 12 slot, too, on which memory card you're looking at. If you recall the shortcut for this was using the playback button and pressing it down for two seconds continuously. If you shoot raw images with this camera, you can do ah lot of post production work right in the camera. Fuji has their own special processor, and they have a special look to their J pegs. But many people want to shoot with Ross. And so, if you enjoy both, one of the options you have is to shoot with raw and process that image in the camera. So if you want to go in there and you want to add a grain effect where you want to change the noise reduction or any of these particular features here, you can take a raw image, have that effect appl...

ied and a duplicate J Peg image is made, so the original raw images left untouched and you get a perfect Jay Peak image of exactly what you want to have happen, and you can have several versions of that because you can go in and create as many as you want. You will, of course, be able to erase your images. You can select all the images or individual frames from there. You also have the garbage can button on the back of the camera. But if you have lots of images to erase, it might be a little quicker accessing it here because you don't have to go through quite as many button presses to erase a lot of images. If you want a crop, an image, you can do so here. It doesn't ruin the original image. It does make a copy so that you can have a new second version that is cropped in. You can resize your images if you want to make a smaller in size, and most of this would be done. If you're gonna be scenting sending the images to a printer or to a phone or something like that, perhaps you can protect images which protect them from getting deleted. Be mindful that you can still reform at a memory card and get rid of all of your image. Is that the way? So protecting the images does not save them from a reformat. A reformat will delete the images in all cases. If you need to rotate an image for a slide show, you can do so here. And there is also a red eye removal options so that if you shoot an image that has red eye, you can manually select that image to do the red eye removal later on. So these are all kind of post production. I call him Photo shop in the camera options. You can copy images if you want from one slot to the next. So if you're just shooting in slot number one and you decide at some point later on, you'd like to have a backup copy. You can copy all of those images from slot 12 slot, too, and then we have another access for our wireless communication. So if you're playing back your images and your thinking, I'd like to get this over to my phone. You can access your wireless system here as well as the other place that we've seen before in the camera. If you want took your camera up to a TV, you could do a slide show. And this will, uh, show. Well, this will allow you to select the interval in which images you're looking at. If you want to do a little collection of photos, they call it a photo book assist. You can create collections of photos on your memory card. This is something I think is better served in a program like Adobe Light Room. So PC Auto Save will allow you to use that wireless option to automatically save information to a PC over a wireless system. Don't know a lot of people that use it, but it is possible within the camera. You can hook this camera up to a more standardized printer, and this would allow you to go in and select the size of Prince, the number of prints and various print settings on it. But if you want to get the best print quality, you're probably best going through an actual printer. We do have another wireless communication for the in stacks printer, which will allow you to print portable pricks pictures out on the go from Battery Power's great for travel photographers. And if we are going to be doing a display on a TV weaken, select between either filling the frame by nine aspect ratio of the TV itself, or by getting the entire image area off the sensor of the three by two image aspect ratio. And so, either way, you're either going to get black bars on the side or you're gonna be cropping off a little bit of the top and bottom of your image. And my preference is for a three by two. If I shot still photos, I probably want to see them that way, unless I'm trying to match up with a video which case I choose 16 by nine.

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.
