Pressing the Playback button on the back of the camera takes you into the camera's playback mode. Here you can view the images that you have captured and stored on the camera's SD card. Pressing the DISP. button allows you to change the amount of information that is shown on the LCD screen, from nothing to a full list with histogram to a closeup for checking focus.

Once you are in Playback mode, you can press the zoom control to the wide end to enter the camera's index mode. This mode allows you to view several thumbnails at a time, allowing you to quickly search and find the image that you are looking for.

Pressing the zoom control the other way (tele) when you are on a single image allows you to zoom in on that image. Once you have zoomed in, you can use the 4-way controller to scroll around the image to inspect for focus, etc. Thanks to the G1X's nice 3.0-inch screen, you have plenty of detail to see an accurate representation of the image.
