Pressing the Up button enables the magnified playback function and depending on the image size there are multiple steps up to a max. of 18x. Pressing the Down button steps back out to normal fullscreen mode. To pan around inside of the magnified image you first press the DISP button.

Pressing the DISP button while in Play mode toggles between full screen and index modes. In Index mode you can quickly preview the stored images on the card and display any one in normal fullscreen mode.

The full motion video movie clips can be played in-camera with the usual Start, Pause and Stop controls. The F601 Zoom has a built-in speaker so the audio portion can be heard during playback. Movies and still images may also be displayed on a television set, but this requires the optional cradle -- there is no A/V out port on the camera.
