You can choose for the D40X to display a review of the image taken immediately
after shutter release. The type of display used will be the same as the
last mode used in playback (histogram, thumbnail, details etc.). Note that record
review has all of the functionality of playback mode, this means
you can use the delete, magnify, protect buttons etc.
Press the Playback button to display the last image taken or the last image on the card. Use the four-way
up or down (or turn the sub-command dial) to change display mode (five available), press left or right (or turn the main command dial) to browse images.
Press the delete button to display the 'Delete?' prompt, press once more to delete the image
Press the protect button to protect (small key icon appears) or unprotect an image
Press the magnify button to switch to magnification mode, simply use the multi-selector (4 way controller) to move around the image, press OK to return to full view.
Press the zoom button for playback zoom mode,
image is partially magnified and an overview navigation box is shown at the bottom right
As you zoom further the navigation box shows a representation of the current view
Maximum zoom is described as '25x' although doesn't appear to show any more detail than the step before
After approximately two seconds the navigation box disappears, change the zoom level or scroll around and it will re-appear

The D40X has two levels of thumbnail view, either 2 x 2 or 3 x 3. Press the thumbnail index button to enter thumbnail mode with 4 images (2 x 2), press again to switch to the 9 image (3 x 3) view. If you leave the camera
in this view mode it will use it for record review. Note that if you have the 'Rotate Tall' option enabled images taken in the portrait orientation are displayed vertically.
