Playback Screens & Menus

Please excuse the poor quality of these screen captures. The ELPH 330 HS kit does not include an AV output cable, therefore we had to photograph the display screen.

To enter Playback mode with the Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS, just press the Playback button on the back of the camera.

With an image on the screen, you'll see some basic information about it, including the file number in the upper right, the resolution in the lower left, and the time and date the image was shot in the lower right.

Press the Disp button on the back of the camera to change the information displayed on the screen. You'll see a detailed screen where the image shrinks to fill the upper left corner. The lower left includes a histogram for the image, while the far right has (from top to bottom) the file number, shooting mode, shutter speed, ISO setting, aperture setting, exposure value, white balance, file size, resolution, time, and date.

Press Disp again and all of the data will be removed from the screen. If you press Disp again, the screen will return to the original look.

If you want to see more images on the screen at one time, which makes it easier to scroll through them, you can use the ELPH 330's thumbnail feature.

With a single image on the screen, press the zoom ring to the left, and the screen will change to a 2x2 grid of images. Continue pressing the zoom ring to the left to see 3x3, 6x6, and 10x10 thumbnail grids. Use the four-way button to scroll through the various images. Press the zoom ring to the right to reduce the number of images shown in the grid.

Once you have the image you want highlighted, press Func/Set.

Playback - magnify GIF.gif
You'll have the ability to magnify a portion of the ELPH 330's images in Playback mode as well. With a single image on the screen, press the zoom ring to the right, and you can magnify part of the image. The overall image is represented by the large white outlined box in the lower right, while the portion of the image that's visible is indicated by the white rectangle inside the box. You can use the four-way button to adjust the view of the magnified portion of the image.

You can play movies using the PowerShot ELPH 330's LCD screen while in Playback mode, too. With a movie on the screen, press the Func/Set button twice to begin playing it. You also can see data about the movie by pressing the Disp button with the movie displayed on the screen.

Record - Wifi GIF.gif
When you're in Playback mode, you can activate the ELPH 330's Wi-Fi mode, allowing you to share images with a variety of devices. Just press the upper button of the four-way button while in Playback mode to open the primary Wi-Fi- menu screen that contains five icons.

  • Camera - Use this mode to connect to another Wi-Fi-enabled Canon camera
  • Smartphone - Use this mode to connect to Wi-Fi-enabled smartphones and tablets
  • Computer - Install the software that's included with the PowerShot ELPH 330 HS on a computer that has Wi-Fi capabilities to make a direct connection with the camera
  • Printer - Use this mode to send images from the camera to a PictBridge-compatible printer
  • Web - Use this mode to connect to the Canon Image Gateway online photo service through the Internet
Once you pick a device to connect to, you'll be asked to pick the Wi-Fi network you want to use to make the connection. You may need to give your Canon ELPH 330 HS camera a nickname to use on the network, and you may need to enter a network password before you can connect. As the camera makes the connection, you'll see messages on the screen updating you on the progress.

The overall process of setting up Wi-Fi can be a little tricky with the ELPH 330, unless you have a bit of experience with making Wi-Fi network connections.

Press the Menu button in Playback mode to open the Playback menu, which gives you control over the images stored on the camera's memory card. The Playback menu is available when you highlight the left tab marked with the Play icon.
