Pressing the Zoom button enables the zoomed playback mode. The image is magnified further by continuing to press the button. You can stop at any one of the eight zoom views and scroll around to check for critical focus, color or composition by using the 4-way controller. Pressing the index button zooms out.

You can also rotate the main command dial to switch between stored images at the current zoom playback position. This is great for quickly checking critical focus on a sequence of images.
