Pressing the Play button displays the last recorded frame. You can navigate through stored images by using the Arrow Pad/4-way controller or rotating the Control Dial on top of the camera allows you to use the Index or Magnify options (shown below).
The INFO button controls the amount of detailed information that is displayed for an image. Above you can see an animation of the available options. Press this button repeatedly until the desired information is superimposed on top of the photo.
Info 1, which displays the image size (4032x3024), image quality mode (Large/Fine JPEG + RAW), file number, memory card being accessed (CF), and image number (50).
Info 2 moves the image to a thumbnail in the upper left and displays all the shooting information (Shutter speed, Aperture, Focal length, ISO, etc.) on the right of the screen and 4 tiny histograms on the lower left.
Info 3 is the enlarged histogram display showing the distribution of the brightness of the image. The histogram graphically shows the contrast and dynamic range of the image on a scale of 0 - 255 (left to right) with 0 being black and 255 is white.
Info 4 is the Shadow/Highlight display superimposed over the image highlighting the overexposed/Underexposed parts. Highlight will blink Red, while Shadows will blink Blue.
Info 5 clears all information off the screen, displaying only the image itself; perfect for when sharing pictures with friends and family.
The Index/Calendar Display mode lets you show several images on the LCD monitor at the same time. During single-frame playback,
turn the Control Dial clockwise and the number of images shown changes from 4 to 9 to 16 to 25 to 49 to 100 and finally to the Calendar display
mode. With the Calendar display on the screen, you can choose images by the date they were shot.
Magnify, also know as the Zoom playback function, allows you to closely inspect images by zooming in up to 14x in several steps. You activate this option by rotating the Control Dial counter clockwise. Once an image is enlarged, you can move around inside of it by using the Arrow Pad/4-way controller.
