Pressing the REVIEW button will bring up the last image or video that was taken by the camera. There are three different settings that can be chosen that allow different amounts of information to be displayed about each photo.

Pressing the "i" button displays a wealth of exposure information. Here you can see the filename, date and time of capture, image quality,, compression, color mode, focal length (zoom position), ISO speed, flash mode, exposure mode, aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation, metering mode, focus mode, white balance, and the histogram display. Press the "i" button again to clear all info; great for displaying images on your TV set.
