Pressing the playback button on the back of the camera takes you to playback mode. Here you can see all of the images that are saved on the SD card. Pressing the INFO button allows you to change the amount of information on the LCD screen. The WiFi icon in the top left of the screen is a shortcut to the WiFi shooting settings, allowing you to control and view images from the camera on a smartphone or tablet.

Turning the rear dial to the -magnifying glass takes the camera to index mode. Here you can search through thumbnails of the images that are stored on the SD card. This is a fast and simple way to find that one great image you are looking for. If you keep tuning the dial in that direction you will see the calendar view, which allows the user to search by the date that the images were taken. The touch LCD screen also gives you access to the index and calendar modes. Sliding your finger allows you to scroll through the thumbnails.

Turning the rear dial the other way allows you to zoom in on any image saved on the camera. Once you have zoomed in, you can use the 4-way controller to scroll around the image. This is a great way to check focus and detail while in the field. The zoom control can also be controlled via the touch screen, sliding a bar to increase and decrease the amount of zoom. Touching and dragging the screen allows you to see the entire image.

The playback menu gives you a few simple options for the slideshow playback, image rotation, edit menu, print order, image protection and connecting to a smartphone.

The edit menu provides you with a couple options for easy image editing. The shadow adjust feature brings out detail from the darker areas of your image. Redeye fix will remove redness from your subjects eyes. Crop and aspect allow you to change the overall image and there are also several settings to change and adjust the images color.

Movie playback is possible on the camera's 3.0-inch touch LCD. The camera provides you with basic movie controls like play, pause and frame by frame searching. Using an optional HDMI cable allows you view your movies on any HDTV while controlling them with the camera.
