Answers :

This allows you to see where your photo is over or under exposed. It helps you see if the exposure is set right.
\015\012You can turn it on and off by moving the Up/Down/Left/Right button up or down. This will move you thorough the image data (shutter speed, aperature, file format...etc.). It should show "Highlights" on the screen when you have this selected.
