Playback Modes & Menus
Pressing the Playback button brings up the last image captured in full screen mode. This is also what you will see after shooting a picture if the Preview option is enabled. By pressing the display button you can change the amount and type of information that is displayed about the current photograph. There is also a screen that displays 4 separate histograms for Red Green Blue and Yellow.
Rotating the control dial to the left will bring up an index of the pictures on the camera. It starts with a view of 9 thumbnails. Rotating it again will give you 25, and a third time will bring up a calendar, allowing you to select your pictures by the date in which they were taken.
Rotating the thumb dial the other way will allow you to select an image from the index menu, but then it will also allow you to zoom in on an image. The camera will zoom to 2x, 4x, 8x, and 16x. While you are zoomed in you can use the directional buttons to navigate around the photograph.
