When you rotate the Mode Dial to the Play position the last picture taken is displayed full screen. There is very little overlay information, only the picture number and the memory source (SD card).

The Picture Info option displays the filename, date and time of capture, image quality, flash status, aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation, white balance and ISO speed.
