While an image is displayed full screen you can magnify it by pressing the telephoto side of the zoom lens control. Once magnified you can scroll around inside of it using the 4-way selector.

Movie clips playback fullscreen, the 4-way selector acts as the start, stop and pause control. You can pause a movie and play it forwards or backwards one frame at a time.

A very limited play mode menu, one option is for initiating an automatic slideshow and the other is for setting the DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) printing information.

The Setup menu (same in record and play) lets you Format the CF card, enable or disable the beep sounds when buttons are pushed, set the date style, change the date and or time, set the world time zone or change the menu language.

Page two of the Setup menu lets you set the video format (NTSC or PAL), set the Sleep timeout value (90s, 1m, 2m), LCD brightness or Reset to factory defaults.
