How to Create a Digital Slide Show on the Nikon D7200

By Julie Adair King

The Slide Show feature on your Nikon D7200, found on the Playback menu, sets the camera to automatically display photos and movies one by one. You can view the show on the camera monitor or, by connecting your camera to a TV as just outlined, enjoy it on an HDTV screen.

Which files are included in the show depend on the setting of the Playback Folder option on the Playback menu. Additionally, any pictures that you hid through the Hide Image function do not appear.

Follow these steps to present a slide show:

  1. Display the Playback menu and select Slide Show.

    You see the screen shown here.

    Choose Slide Show to set up automatic playback of pictures and movies.
    Choose Slide Show to set up automatic playback of pictures and movies.
  2. Set the Image Type and Frame Interval options and then press OK.

    Select Image Type to specify whether you want the show to include photographs and movies, photos only, or movies only. The Frame Interval option determines how long each image will be displayed. (Movies always play in their entirety.)

  3. To begin playing the show, select Start.

    When the show ends, you’re given the option to restart the show, adjust the frame interval, or exit to the Playback menu.

During the show, control playback as follows:

  • Pause/restart. Press OK to pause; to resume playback, select Restart. While the show is paused, you can adjust the frame interval if needed.

  • Skip to the next/previous image. 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 display modes.

  • Adjust movie volume. Press the Zoom In button to increase volume; press the Zoom Out button to decrease it.

  • Exit the show before it ends: Press the Playback button.
