Taking up most of the room on the back of the camera is the 2.7-inch, 230k pixel LCD screen. This screen is used to frame and compose your images while shooting, viewing your images and navigating and changing your camera's settings.
Back Controls: At the top you see the dedicated Video Record button
that allows you to capture video instantly, no matter what shooting
mode you are in. Next come the Playback and Shooting Mode buttons,
allowing you to easily change between the two modes. Under that is the
4-way controller and SET button. These allow you to search your stored
images, navigate your menus and change your shooting settings. It also
allows you to change the amount of info on the LCD and is a shortcut to
the flash settings by pressing it up or down. At the
bottom are buttons that open the camera Menu (MENU) and Scene mode menu
(BS), which includes the Auto Best Shot mode.
A USB port is used to transfer your images from the camera to your
computer. This port also allows you to view your images on a TV via the included AV cable.
The Z280 accepts SD and SDHC memory cards to increase the storage size
