Playback Screens & Menus

(Note: Please excuse the quality of these screen captures, Sony does not provide an Audio/Video cable with the A330, so we had to photograph the LCD.)


Pressing the Play button brings up the last image stored full screen on the LCD. The image size and quality is in the upper right corner, down in the lower left are the shutter speed, aperture and date&time of the exposure. Upper left is the folder/file number, and at the lower right is the ISO speed and frame number of the total number of images stored on the memory card.

Pressing the DISPlay button (Up on the 4-way) allows you so see all of the exposure details. The current image is displayed with a exposure and RGB histograms, exposure mode used, image size/quality, shutter speed, aperture, ISO, exposure compensation, metering mode, focal length, creative mode used, white balance, and the d-range setting. Press DISPlay again to clear all info from the screen; perfect for sharing.
