FUNC Menu

Pressing the FUNC button in record mode overlays the FUNC menu over the live scene preview (black background used here for clarity).

Each setting appears in the same place as when the menu is canceled. Use the up and down arrows to move through the menu and left and right to change a setting. Some options have sub-menus which can be accessed by pressing the AE lock button. The FUNC menu in Auto and Scene modes is a subset of this (example of Auto FUNC menu).

Record Menu (P, Tv, Av, M, C1, C2 modes)

Pressing the MENU button in record mode overlays the record menu over the live scene preview (black background used for clarity).

As you move down the menu it scrolls two options before the bottom so you can always see what options are coming.
