Playback Screens & Menus

Pressing the playback button will bring up the last image/video captured or viewed. The images can be displayed alone, with the standard information or a more detailed list of information about the image can be displayed by pressing up (DISP) on the 4-way controller. The 4-way also allows you to scroll through your files by pressing left/right, or rotating the control wheel.

Pressing the zoom lever to wide angle will bring up the index mode. Here you can see all of the photos and videos that are present of the memory card in thumbnails, either 16 or 25 at a time. Pressing the lever a third time will bring up the calendar view, where you can choose to view files by the date in which they were taken.

Pressing the zoom lever towards the Telephoto end allows you to zoom in on a single image up to 8x in various steps. Once enlarged, you can use the 4-way controller to scroll around the image.
