Menus

When used in one of the PASM exposure modes, the menu system of the Nikon D3000 is fairly typical for Nikon cameras at this level. Like its nearest counterpart the D5000, the entry-level D3000 offers an impressively deep feature set, much of which is accessed via the four main tabs of the menu system. The function of the final tab - 'Recent Settings' is explained over the page.
