Each series of shots taken during burst photography can be treated as a group. This cuts down on the amount of time spent scrolling back and forth to view pictures after shooting long bursts.

  • The [Frame advance] > [Skip to first shot in burst] options for Custom Setting f3 [Custom controls (playback)] > [Main command dial] and [Sub-command dial] have been renamed [Skip to first shot in series].

Identifying the First Shot in Each Burst

[Mark first shot in series] has been added to the options available for [Playback display options] > [Add info] in the playback menu. When this option is selected (M), the first picture in each burst will be identified by a c icon and the figure giving the total number of shots in the burst.

Viewing the Shots in Each Burst

[Start series playback] has been added to the roles that can be assigned using Custom Setting f3 [Custom controls (playback)] (f3: Custom Controls (Playback)). The pictures in a burst can be viewed in sequence by holding the control when any of the shots is displayed. Playback stops when the control is released.

Burst Playback Options

A [Series playback] item has been added to the playback menu. It contains options for viewing bursts.

“Sub-selector Displays First Shot”

  • Select [ON] to skip all but the first shot in each burst when scrolling through pictures by tilting the sub-selector left or right. Pictures that are not part of a burst will not be skipped. The individual shots in each burst can be viewed by tilting the sub-selector up or down.

  • Tilting the sub-selector up, down, left, and right when [OFF] is selected performs the same functions as pressing 1, 3, 4, and 2 on the multi selector.

“Auto Series Playback”

If [ON] is selected, the remaining pictures will play back automatically after the first picture in the burst has been displayed full frame for a few seconds. Playback ends when the last picture in the burst is displayed.

“List Series as Single Thumbnails”

When [ON] is selected, only the first shot in each burst will appear in the thumbnail list. The first picture in each burst will be identified by a c icon and a figure giving the total number of shots in the burst.

  • A [Manage series] item appears in the playback i menu when [ON] is selected for [List series as single thumbnails]. It can be used to protect, delete, or upload to a computer or FTP server all pictures in selected bursts.
