K-3 setup for 1-press histogram on, while shooting

K-3 settings and operations for 1-click histogram in playback mode.
Setup your K-3 like this:

Menu: Camera 4, Instant Review, Display time= Hold. Histogram Display= Off (Choose Highlight Alert off or on as you like.)

Take a photo.

Press the Blue Arrow for playback mode, press Info, choose the histogram type (normal/ RGB), you can always change the histogram type in playback mode with the up/ down arrows. Confirm with OK.

Setup complete!

Take a new photo, check the composition while in the Hold mode, if you have enabled Highlight Alert, you can see red areas blinking for overexposed areas.

Press the Blue arrow for playback mode (this is the 1-press!), now you will see the latest used histogram, change the type with up and down buttons if you want. Press the shutter button lightly to exit the playback mode and get ready to shoot again.

Excellent tip. Exactly what I needed. Thank you.
