Controls on the back of the camera include a Mode Dial, which allows you to easily change your shooting mode. Under that are the playback and Display/Back buttons.  Next we have the 4-way controller and MENU/OK button. The 4-way controller provides you with shortcuts to the Exposure Compensation/Delete (UP), Flash (RIGHT), Self-Timer (DOWN) and Macro (LEFT). Pressing the Menu button enters the camera menu, and also makes your selection. The Display button controls the amount of information on the screen as well as backing out of menus without making a selection.
