As a point and shoot alternative to our D7000's and D300's, we have a Canon G12 (Which I rarely use).
My question: I want to go back and check a shutter speed and/or fstop after taking the picture. Immediately after taking the picture I can see this information. However, when I use the playback function later on I cannot.
On the G10 one of the display screens had this info. On the G12 the screen shows separate RGB histograms instead. Although I really like the RGB screens to correct exposure and/or white balance, there are times in the field I want to know what shutter speed or f stop was used for an image. I shoot almost exclusively in aperture priority.
When in playback is there any way, short of my getting home to CS-5, that I can see the shutter speed and/or aperture for a shot after I have taken another shot?
This will teach me not to desert Nikon, not even for a point and shoot.

Problem solved via Mats on the dpreview Canon Talk Forum.
I guess I reviewed the manual too quickly a few nights ago and missed what I wss looking for.
Pages 44-45 indicate that if you press the "up" on the multifunction dial while in the RGB display or the shooting info display the two toggle back and forth.
