To the right of the LCD monitor is the MENU/OK button which toggles the Menu on/off . While ON, the menu selections are navigated with the 4-way and the OK button makes selections. The BACK button stops any procedure when necessary. The DISPlay button in Record selects the LCD monitor ON/OFF or selects the four framing grid lines. In Playback the DISPlay button toggles between Text display ON/OFF and Index of last nine images in tiny thumbnails. The blue "F" button enables the Photo Mode menu where you select image quality, ISO speed and color mode.
