Playback Modes & Screens
During playback you can control the amount of information that is overlayed on the
LCD (or EVF) by pressing the INFO button on the back of the camera. We start out with
the default information here in the first frame.
Pressing the INFO button toggles the display of all camera and exposure data.
And pressing the INFO button again clears off most all screen data altogether.

camera magnifies the image in small increments each time you toggle the zoom control
switch to the telephoto position. You can step back by using the zoom control in the
wideangle position. Once the image has been magnified you can freely scroll around
inside of it by using the 4-way selector switch.
