A look at the back of the silver body DigiBino DB100. The large black wheel on the top is for extending and focusing the eyepieces of the binocular portion of the DB100.

All of the digital camera controls are on the top. There's a familiar 4-way selector with an OK button in the center. This is used to access and navigate the menu screens and control the playback function which will be detailed on the next page. The MENU button calls up the onscreen menu and the DISPLAY button controls the amount of data on the color LCD, it also turns the camera on in Playback mode. And of course we have the shutter release button.
