The overlay information is displayed for each image. By pressing the DISP button you can set it to display several different amounts of info, including allowing you to select your photos by the date taken.

There are 3 different index modes in which you can choose from. You can show two images side by side, 9 images, or with the high resolution LCD screen you can display 100 images in a 10x10 array.

If the camera uses the face detection when taking a picture, then it will tell you when you are viewing them in playback mode. It also gives you the option to zoom in on the faces by hitting the face detection button. If there are more than 1 face detected, it will continue to show the faces in the picture (Up to 10 per image).

As with the F40fd, this camera also includes the 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.
