Pressing the play button on the back of the camera takes it to playback mode. Here you can view the images and videos that are stored on the camera's memory. The DISP button on the back of the camera allows you to change the amount of information that the camera shows about each image.
Using the zoom lever at the wide end, brings up the index view. Here you can see thumbnails of the images that are stored on the memory. There are several levels that offer more or less thumbnails, making it fast and easy to find a single image.
If you press the zoom lever to the telephoto end, you can zoom in on a single image. Once you have zoomed in, you can use the 4-way controller to scroll around the image. This is a great way to check focus and the fine details of the image when you do not have access to a computer.
The playback menu is short and simple. It covers the viewing options for viewing your images on the camera, as well as a rotate option (shown below).
The Rotate feature allows you to change the orientation of an image. It also allows you to mirror the image, which is not a common feature. The icons at the bottom show you exactly what will happen to your image with each change.
Your recorded home movies can be shown on either the camera's LCD screen or on any HDTV with an optional HDMI cable. The camera offers basic video control features that allow you to view the movies with ease.
