Controls on the back. The 4-way selector lets you navigate menus
and accept selections by pressing in the center. It is also used to select images
during playback. When in record mode it serves to toggle the flash modes, macro mode,
selftimer and the Quick Revew function. The DSPL/LCD button controls the color LCD and

selftimer and the capacity of the Memory Stick.
I/O ports are on the back: The DC IN for the battery charger, high-speed USB
port for downloading to the computer and the A/V out with mono audio and video

The P5 is powered by a new 3.6v NP-FC10 Sony InfoLITHIUM battery pack. It is charged
