Pressing the play button on the back of the camera takes you to playback mode. Here you can see all of the images and videos that you have captured on the SD card. Pressing the INFO button changes the amount of information that is shown on the LCD screen. A screen with the full list of camera settings is available, including light and RGB histograms.
The "checkerboard" button enters the camera into index mode. Here you can scroll through thumbnails of your images to find a single image faster. You can also search your images based on the date they were taken.
Next to the index button is the zoom button or magnifying glass. This allows you to zoom in on an image up to 14x. You can then scroll around the image using the 4-way controller. A small zoom key is shown at the bottom right, informing you of what portion of the capture images is being magnified.
Pressing the OK button brings up your playback edit menu. Here you have options to edit, protect, record audio, rotate, play as a slideshow, print, send through Penpal or erase an image. You can even edit and convert RAW images in-camera (not shown).
All of the JPEG images that you capture can be edited on camera: Shadow Adjust, Redeye Fix, Crop, Aspect, Black & White, Sepia, Saturation, Resize, and e-Portrait.
