Pressing the DISP button again brings up further icons on the left to indicate the capture mode (auto, manual, movie), drive mode (single, continuous), flash mode, exposure compensation and white balance.

If you press the DISP button again all of the overlay information is removed. This is good for when you are showing the pictures on the TV and don't want the info displayed.
