To quickly search through your stored images you move the zoom control lever to the wide angle position and it brings up a thumbnail index page. Using the 4-way jog switch you can select an image and then display it full screen. This display can be set for 4, 9 or 16 thumbnail images per page.

The little green icons:   A "key" means the image is protected. The "camera" icon means it is a movie clip. The "printer" icon means it has been selected for DPOF printing.
