Pentax Optio 330RS


Playback Screens & Menus

The LCD screens that you see in this review had to be photographed as there is no video out- port that we normally use to capture the displays with.  LCD monitors on any camera were never designed with enough resolution to be photographed. So we hope you understand why these screen captures are not up to standard.

Pentax Optio 330RS

Pressing the OK / PLAY button toggles the Playback mode and brings up the last image captured in full screen mode with limited overlay information.



Pentax Optio 330RS

Pressing the DISPLAY button toggles the realtime histogram display which also shows the image size, quality level, white balance, metering mode, ISO speed, exposure, and date/time of capture.



Pentax Optio 330RS

Pressing the Wide Angle Zoom button while in PLayback brings up the thumbnail index mode, here you can quickly search through the stored images and select one for full screen playback.



Pentax Optio 330RS

While an image is displayed full screen you can magnify it by pressing the telephoto side of the zoom lens control. Once magnified you can scroll around inside of it using the 4-way selector.



Pentax Optio 330RS

Movie clips playback fullscreen continuously, the 4-way selector acts as the start, stop and pause control.

All menus when in Playback are the identical menus as in Record Mode and were explained on the previous page.
