Playback Screens & Menus
By Josh Fate
Index mode allows you to easily search through your stored images by allowing you to see thumbnails of 12 or 30 images at a time. You can also search by the date in which the images were captured via the calendar screen. This menu can be accessed by pressing the zoom lever to the wide end.
Pressing the zoom lever to the telephoto end allows you to zoom in on any of the images that you have captured. The camera will zoom to 2x, 4x, 8x and 16x. The 4-way controller can then be used to scroll through the image.
