The rear controls are simple to use. There is a dedicated video recording button (the camera can shoot at Full HD in the AVCHD format), as well as a focus zoom button, another function button (this one is preset to change the colour saturation), a playback button, a delete button, an info button (for showing or hiding screen details) and a menu button. A standard five-way menu controller is present and it has a rotatable ring that allows you to change the shutter speed in manual mode. The thumb dial above it allows you to change the aperture. There is no dedicated ISO button.

As well as physical controls, the 3in OLED screen has a touch capability that allows you to focus by pointing anywhere on the screen (you can tell by the smudges we left on it). A screen shutter is also available so that when you touch the screen, the camera will focus on that point and then automatically take a picture.
