My Menu

The 'My Menu' feature on the EOS 5D Mark II allows you to produce a custom menu made up of any of the cameras menu options (including custom functions) which means that previously buried but useful options such as Mirror lockup can now be brought to a top level menu. The menu can even be arranged so that the options appear in the sequence you find most logical.
