Playback Screens & Menus

By

(Note: Please excuse the quality of these screen captures, Sony does not provide an Audio/Video cable with the A33, so we had to photograph the LCD.)


sony_a33_display_anim.gifPressing the Playback button on the A33 will show the last image or video captured full screen. There are three display options available by pressing the DISPlay button; from minimum information, to detailed exposure info with RGB and light histograms, to nothing at all.

 
sony_a33_index.jpgPressing the index/exposure button on the top of the A33 will bring you to the Index mode, which allows you to view files stored on the memory card quickly. The Playback menu gives you an option to choose either 6 or 12 thumbnails at a time. To search through files, you simply use the left/right/up/down buttons of the 4-way controller. Any movies that are recorded will be in the movie index shown below.

If you look along the left hand side of the image above you will see the two different index icons. The top is the image index (shown above) and the bottom (highlighted now) is the index for captured movies.


sony_a33_zoom_anim.gifPressing the AEL/magnify button will enter the Magnify mode, which enlarges an image up to 11.8x for critical inspection. You can then scroll around the enlarged image using the 4-way controller buttons, and change the degree of magnification by pressing the button over and over. The indicator is displayed in the bottom left corner, displaying the portion of the image that is being enlarged, framed in orange.
