The top button on the back of the camera is the play button, allowing you to enter play mode to view your images. Next is the 4-way, joystick controller. Pressing it left enables macro mode and right allows you to change your flash settings. In playback mode, left and right move to the next or previous image, while up and down jump a few images. There are then 4 buttons under the 4-way controller. First is the menu button, allowing you to change the camera's settings and access its various functions.
