The Quick Review function first seen on the Coolpix 880 is now available on the Coolpix 990. Just press the button while in Record mode and the last image taken is displayed in a PIP (Picture in a Picture) window in the upper left of the LCD. Press the Quick Review button again and the camera is effectively in full screen playback mode but ready to go back to recording at a tap of the shutter release.

While displaying a picture full screen you can press the Telephoto zoom control button and magnify the image. There are 25 intermediate magnifying steps all the way up to a maximum of 6x. At any magnification step you can scroll around inside of the image using the 4-way selector.

The QuickTime MOVies that you record can be played back full screen on the color LCD or a television set if the video out cable is hooked up. Unfortunately there is no microphone on the Coolpix 995 so they're silent movies :-(
