Record mode menu

Auto record doesn't have a menu so we'll skip that. The Manual record mode menu is shown here, it allows for a good amount of control over various photographic settings, it's easy to navigate and choose your option though sometimes annoying that you only get four options per page (perhaps horizontal orientation would have worked better?).
