Custom menu

There are 36 custom settings on the K20D, providing a level of customization and fine tuning usually only seen on professional-level camera bodies. It's well worth sitting down with the manual and going through these settings when you first buy the camera to get it to behave how you want it to. Most of these are options you'll set once and never need to go back to.
