Camera Menus

Very similar to the EOS 400D the 450D's menus are divided across seven pages accessed by pressing the left or right arrow buttons. The last menu option is the new 'My Menu' feature first seen on the EOS 40D which provides a fully customizable menu which can have any option assigned to its lines.
