Play and Review mode controls
Unlike other digicams the EX1500 has separated the play and thumbnails mode into PLAY and REV, detailed below.
Displays the image almost instantly, if you look closely (no, closer than that) you can see the camera is loading the full image over the top of the thumbnail it has loaded first, once this is complete (about 7 seconds @ FINE) you can Zoom into the image. Zoom mode on the EX1500 allows you to scroll around the image using the four way controller.
The "menu" in Play mode lets you start a Slide Show or set the Playback Rate.
