Rear of camera controls

Although initially complex in appearance the rear of the camera is actually pretty straightforward. There are five controls associated with the LCD monitor, they are the four buttons down the left side (MENU, Trash, INFO, Play) and the Fn button. The Fn button displays a four-way settings menu on the LCD monitor which allows you to change flash mode, drive mode, ISO sensitivity and flash mode.
