Controls on Back: From the top you see the dedicated red Video Recording button and the AF/AE lock button. Under that is a joystick control which when pressed brings up a quick menu. To the right is the REC/Playback switch. Next you can see the EVF/LCD button, Display button and the Continuous shooting and Delete button. Finally we get to the 4-way controller which has shortcuts for Exposure compensation, Flash, Self-Timer and Fn (Function) button. The Fn button can be set to control one of many different functions that you can set. In the middle is the Menu/Set button which brings up the camera menus and makes your selections.

Not shown is the digital/AV output which allows you to connect the camera to a computer via USB or to a standard TV with  the included AV cable.
