Pressing the DISP button toggles image display with text, image display without text, multi-frame playback and sorting by date. Using multi-frame playback you can quickly search through the captured images to display one full screen, depressing the 4-way selector buttons to move among the images.

Sorting by date gets you directly to those images shot on the date of interest regardless of the number of images stored on the memory card. Use the 4-way selector to select the date in the left frame.

You can replay your movies full screen on either the color LCD or EVF. And you can also play them back on your TV when using the supplied A-V cable. Those big 640x480 30fps movies look great on the BIG screen.

The Play menu lets you delete the current picture, ALL pictures, rotate, set the DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) information, protect this/all images, control playback time, add a 30-sec Voice Memo to an image and trim the image.

Trimming is invoked from the Display menu while viewing the unzoomed image. At any zoom-in step you can pan around the image until you have it cropped the way you want it and then trim it and save it as a smaller size image.
