The full Play mode menu has options for resizing pictures to a smaller size, cropping and saving images to a smaller size, playing back voice memos attached to still images and entering the Setup menu.

This is the play image with the INFO option enabled. It displays image quality (SHQ), image size (2560 x 1920), aperture (F4.5), shutter speed (1/80 secs.), exposure compensation (0.0), white balance (auto), ISO speed (160), time (12:00), date (10/06/03) and file folder (100) and picture number (0002). The green icon in the upper right indicate that the image is protected (key).

When an image is played back in full screen mode you can go into zoomed playback mode by pressing the zoom control to the telephoto position. The image can be magnified from 1.5x to 4.0x in 0.5x steps, once the image is enlarged you can scroll around inside of it using the 4-way selector.

Flipping the zoom control to the wideangle position enables the thumbnail index mode. You can set it up to display 4, 9 or 16 small images to quickly locate any desired image on your memory card.

Pressing MENU/OK when the file is a movie brings up this menu of options. The INFO works the same as with still images, it will overlay the camera and exposure data on top of the movie as it is played back. The Mode Menu accesses the main camera menu and the MOVIE PLAY option takes you to the next menu once the movie clip is loaded into memory.

While the movie is playing the running time and total time is displayed in the lower right corner of the screen. If the "info" option is enabled, this overlay data is displayed at the start of playback for a few seconds.
