Rear of camera controls
The F100 has a clean and logical layout on the rear of the camera. On the left side we have the LCD monitor and a vertical column of buttons. On the top edge are the flash / info and exposure compensation buttons and on the right side the 4-way controller / zoom control. The dark grey coloured material is a hard rubber which helps the grip characteristics of the camera and also gives the camera a better fell and finish.
