Flipping the zoom control to the wide angle position enables the thumbnail index mode. You can display either 4, 9, or 16 thumbnails as well as the calendar page, allowing you to quickly locate a desired image on your memory card. The green "movie camera" indicates that the image is a video file.

While viewing an image full screen, you can move the zoom control lever to the telephoto position and magnify an image from several times in 1x steps. You can move around the image using the 4-way selector to examine the picture for color, focus, etc.

The PLAY MENU has options for Protecting and Rotating images, Slideshow, DPOF printing, attaching SOUND clips, and Album entry. The EDIT MENU has options for RAW EDIT (resolution, white balance, sharpness, contrast and saturation), Image Resize, Image Crop, Redeye Fix, Black& White, Sepia, Frame, Title, Calendar, Layout, Brightness and Saturation. Card and Setup are the same as in record mode.

Pressing OK/MENU when the file is a movie brings up this menu of options. The Album feature adds images to the selected album, the Mode Menu accesses the Playback, Card and Setup menus and the MOVIE PLAY option allows you to play the movie in-camera. Pressing down will jump to the calendar index page.

While the movie is playing, the run time and total time is displayed in the lower right corner of the screen. You can then fast forward, rewind, and adjust the volume (when enabled) using the 4-way controller.
