When you press the Play button, the camera switches to Playback or Review mode. Here you can view your stored images and files. The camera by default displays the last image/video captured. Pressing the DISP. button will change the format in which you view the stored files by either showing a standard format with minimal info, a smaller thumbnail with histogram and extended exposure information, a close-up of the focal point used, or all information and icons cleared.

To quickly search through stored files, you can use the Index playback function shown above. This is activated by manoeuvring the Wide angle zoom control. The amount of thumbnails changes each time you press the control, from 4, 9, 25, to 100. To scroll through these index screens, you use the 4-way controller. Once you land on the image you want to see full-screen, press either the FUNC/SET button or the Telephoto zoom control.

Zooming in on an image is as simple moving the Telephoto zoom control. Images can be magnified up to 10x, and you get a small indicator box at the bottom right to help you see what portion of the frame is being magnified.

Movie clips can be played in the camera with audio thanks to the built-in speaker. When a movie clip is on the screen you press the FUNC/SET button, which when brings up a large "play" symbol. Press FUNC/SET again to start the video. Pressing the FUNC/SET button while the clip is playing will pause the video and bring up VCR-like controls to Exit, Play, Fast-forward, etc. You can also edit the lenght of clips in-camera.
