(Note: Please excuse the poor quality of these screen captures but the EX-Z3 does not have a video out feature so we had to photograph them.)

Pressing the DISP button enables the display of all of the exposure data: Shutter
speed, aperture, ISO value, Best Shot, Flash mode, White Balance and Metering option

The playback image can be magnified up to 4x in four steps when you press
the Zoom Telephoto button. You can scroll around inside of the enlarged
image using the 4-way controller. Pressing the Zoom Wide angle button will
shrink it back down again.
In addition to still images you can also playback your movie clips. Note that the

set for playback. Movies must be transfered to the host computer and
played there to hear the sound portion.
If you shot your picture at the highest resolution and need it for email or web
use then select the Resize option and create a 1280 x 960 or 640 x 480 size image.
