Controls on the back: Top right is the Control Dial, which serves many functions, depending on the exposure mode being used. To the left you can see the AEL/AFL (Protect in playback), Play, Delete, and Menu buttons. Next is the Fn button and the 4-way controller with a secondary control wheel mounted around it.

The 4-way controller is used to navigate the menu system, review images/movies in playback, etc. Press it "Up" to adjust the ISO, "Right" for white balance, "Down" for drive mode , and "Left" to choose the AF mode. The OK button in the center accepts menu selections as well as brings up the function shortcut menu. Lastly we have the INFO button, which controls the amount of information shown on the LCD or VF-2 EVF.
