The controls on the back of the back of the camera are numerous but easy to use. Starting at the top is the mode dial. Here you select which shooting mode you would like to use. Next is the button with the red dot. This serves as a print button when in playback mode, but in recording mode it automatically switches the camera into video mode and starts recording. Next to that is the playback button. Below that is the 4-way control dial which surrounds the FUNC/SET button. On the bottom are the DISP button and the MENU button.
