When you select Playback mode the last picture taken is displayed. You can move backward or forward through the images using the LEFT and RIGHT buttons. The amount of overlay information displayed is controlled by pressing the DISP button. Date/time and image number are displayed along with the picture information. Pressing the DISP button again removes all information, and again enters you into the index viewing mode (below).

You can quickly search through stored images using the Index playback function which is actuated by pressing the DISP button. Nine thumbnail size images will be displayed and you can select one using the LEFT/RIGHT and WIDE/TELE buttons and then pressing the MENU/OK button. Pressing the DISP button again will enter a different index mode that shows 12 images and is sorted by the date that the pictures were taken.

A new feature that Fuji added to a few of it's cameras this year, including the F40fd, is an infrared (IR) communication tool. This allows you to transfer data between two Fuji cameras without any cables. All you have to do is point the IR sensors at each other and specify which camera will send and which will receive. For a single picture, the transfer time was around 2 seconds.
