The contoured thumb groove on the back allows for easy operation and control of the camera with just one hand. Controls on the back: On top are the Mode selection and Playback buttons. In place of the 4-way controller is a rotary multi-selector. This dial works in the same way as the 4-way controller, allowing you to press any of the 4 directions to access timer, flash, EV compensation and macro modes, but it also allows you to scroll through images and menus by turning the dial. Under the dial are the buttons for the Menu and Delete functions.
