When reviewing images you can press the Left or Right portion of the 4-way controller to bring up the extended information overlays. You can cycle through them by repeatedly pushing the controller switch. The first overlay includes the camera model, firmware version, metering mode, shutter speed, aperture, exposure mode, exposure compensation and focal length of lens.
