You can quickly search through stored images using the Index playback function which is actuated by pressing the Wide zoom control. The amount of times you move the Wide zoom control will determine the amount of thumbnails shown, from 4, 9, 36, or 100! When playing back in camera, the amount of thumbnails might differ due to the wide aspect ratio of the LCD.
