The Slide Show feature sets the Nikon D7100 camera to automatically display all photos and movies one by one on the camera monitor. Note these details:

  • Pictures displayed in the show depend on the setting of the Playback Folder option on the Playback menu.

  • Any pictures that you hid through the Hide Image function do not appear in the show.

To set up and run your show, walk this way:

  1. Display the Playback menu and highlight Slide Show.

    Scroll to the second screen of the menu to access this option.

  2. Press OK to display the screen shown on the right.

    This screen is where you set the playback options for your show.

  3. Highlight Image Type, as shown on the right, and press the Multi Selector right.

    You’re taken to a screen where you can choose to include both movies and still photos, just movies, or just photos in the show.

  4. Select the image types you want to include and press OK.

    You return to the slide show setup screen.

  5. If you chose Movies Only in Step 4, skip to Step 8.

  6. Highlight Frame Interval and press the Multi Selector right.

    This option determines how long each photo appears. Intervals range from 2 to 10 seconds. Again, this option doesn’t affect movies; the entire movie is always played during the slide show.

  7. Highlight the frame interval you want to use and press OK.

    Back you go to the slide show setup screen.

  8. Highlight Start and press OK.

    Your slide show starts playing on the camera monitor.

When the show ends, you see a screen offering four options: You can choose to restart the show, adjust the frame interval, or exit to the Playback menu. Highlight your choice and press OK.

During the show, you can control playback as follows:

  • Pause the show. Press OK. Select Restart and press OK to display pictures again. When you pause the slide show, you also can change the frame interval — a handy option if the pace is too quick or slow — or exit the show. Just highlight your choice and press OK. If you adjust the timing, resume playback by choosing Restart and pressing OK.

  • Adjust movie volume. If your slide show contains movies with soundtracks, you can use the Zoom In and Zoom Out buttons to adjust the volume:

    • Increase volume. Press the Qual button.

    • Decrease volume. Press the ISO button.

  • Exit the show. You have three options:

    • To return to regular playback, press the Playback button.

    • To return to the Playback menu, press the Menu button.

    • To return to picture-taking mode, press the shutter button halfway and release it.

  • Skip to the next/previous image manually. Press the Multi Selector right or left.

  • Change the information displayed with the image. Press the Multi Selector up or down to cycle through the info-display modes.
