Pressing the green Play button will take the camera into playback mode, which brings up the last image or video that was captured. These images can be viewed with varying amounts of shooting information. Pressing the Display button will scroll through the different screen shots shown above.



panasonic_DMC-LX5_index_anim.gifUsing the zoom toggle to the Wide end will bring up an index of the stored images by creating thumbnails for you to look through. The DMC-LX5 allows you to see 12 or 30 images at a time. You can also select your images by the date they were taken through the calendar screen.





panasonic_DMC-LX5_zoom_anim.gifUsing the Zoom toggle toward the telephoto end allows you to zoom in on your images from 2x, 4x, 8x and 16x. You can use the 4-way pad to navigate through your image once you have zoomed in.
