While viewing an image full screen, you can move the zoom control lever to the telephoto position and magnify an image up to 4.0x in many steps. You can move around the image using the 4-way selector to examine the picture for color, focus, etc.

Pushing the zoom control to the wide angle position enables the thumbnail index mode. You will see 9 thumbnail images per page, allowing you to quickly locate a desired image or movie on your memory card. The white "movie camera" indicates that the image is a video file.
