Pressing the Play button will display the last recorded image or video. You can navigate through stored images by using the 4-way controller or rotating the Control Dial.

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. Pressing the info button will scroll through the displayed options.

Using the zoom toggle to the Wide end will bring up the Index Display. This will show several images on the display screen at the same time, so you can quickly find the image you are looking for.

Using the zoom control to the telephoto end brings you to the Magnify option, also know as the Zoom playback function. This allows you to closely inspect images by zooming in, in several steps. Using the 4-way pad you can move around the photo and select certain areas, that you want to inspect more closely.
