Pressing the Playback button allows you to view the images that you have captured, that are still saved on your memory card. Since there is no display button,  you have to enter the Playback menu to change the amount of information that is displayed about each image. This information ranges from nothing to a full list of info with a histogram and focus checker.

Thumbnails are shown on the screen in sets of 4, 9, 36, and 100.  The final image allows you to change the thumbnails 100 at a time.
