The blue Playback button will display the last image or video captured, in full screen mode, with some information overlaid. Press "right" or "left" to scroll through the captured images. A musical note indicates an audio memo has been added to this image, press "up" on the 4-way controller to play. Pressing the "OK" button will change the amount of onscreen information shown, just the same a record mode.

Using the Wide Zoom control button while in Playback will display the thumbnail index mode. This allows you to quickly search through the stored images and select one for full screen playback. The WG-1 gives you the option of 6 or 12 thumbnails based on how many times you press the button, or a calendar mode which shows the date the image was captured. You can also use the "Green" button to select an image to delete.

The Resize option lets you create a smaller image in-camera for email or web page use, or to reclaim some memory space in a pinch.

The crop function lets you trim/crop an image, and then save it as a new image, with the quality level of your choice.

Movie clips are played back full screen, and the 4-way selector acts as the start, stop and pause control, similar to that of a VCR/DVR. (icon shown bottom left) You can pause a movie and play it forwards or backwards one frame at a time.

The movie edit function allows you to save a still image from any frame in the movie. It also allows you to split your longer movies into shorter ones, no computer needed.
