Pressing the playback button brings you to the last shot that has been taken on the camera. The display information can be changed by pressing the "Display" button. The information ranges from none (for tv display) to a full set of picture settings including a histogram.

While viewing a picture full screen you can toggle the telephoto zoom control and zoom-in to the image in multiple steps up to 8x. Once magnified you can scroll around inside of the image using the 4-way selector.
