Most every camera I've used has had the ability to look at the "histogram" to see how the contrast and photo was exposed. But in my P100 I can't find this for the life of me. I've looked through every menu on the camera and I notice these menus aren't mentioned in the manual either. Sooo the question is simple, hopefully someone else with a P100 can tell me whether the histograms can be viewed on my P100 or not. Thanks in advance.

I don't have a P100 so I did a search on Google for the manual and found that it covers this on page 15. After you take a picture press the playback button to get into playback mode. Then press the display button to view the histogram.

Hmmm even when I googled I came up empty handed. I will certainly look at this tonight after work. Thanks for the help! P.S. Your avatar never gets old, except the fact it's a steelers cap. I'm a Browns fan... why I don't know! But I graduated with James Harrison so I root for Pittsburgh under my breath when they aren't destroying the Browns.

Hi, I note the following comment on the website: http://www.photograp...ix_p100_review/

In Playback mode, the only notable quirk is the inability to magnify into the image from Histogram view - this is something that ought to be easy to address via a firmware upgrade.

This statement leads me to believe that there is a histogram option in the playback mode as confirmed via the website: http://www.dcresourc...00-review/using
I presume that one of your playback menu buttons has multiple display options. Your manual should clarify this.
