When you flip the switch on the back of the camera from record to playback, the last picture taken is displayed full screen. You can move backward or forward through the images using the LEFT and RIGHT buttons. The amount of overlay information displayed is controlled by pressing the DISPLAY button. You can choose from no info, basic info or a full detailed list of settings.

You can quickly search through stored images using the Index playback function which is activated by pressing the Wide zoom control. The amount of times you move the Wide zoom control will determine the amount of thumbnails shown, from either 12 or 30. Pressing it again then brings up the calendar menu which catagorizes your images by the date taken.
