Camera Menus

The EOS 20D's menu system has a very similar layout to the EOS D30/D60/10D apart from bringing it a little more in line with the appearance of the latest PowerShot digital cameras. The menu is still split into three categories (red, blue, yellow) which is indicated by the colored scroll bar down the right edge of the menu. You can press the JUMP button to skip to each section.
