Menu help

Nearly every setting in the capture menu has a 'Help...' option, choosing this displays a multi-page help screen with a well written and easy to understand description of what effect changing this setting will have on the camera.

Kudos to HP for essentially embedding a 'mini manual' within the camera, this is most welcome.


Capture (record) menu

Pressing the OK button in capture mode displays the capture menu, this would normally be overlaid on the live view image (see previous page for an example), however we have chosen to use a black background for clarity.

Press the up or down arrows to move through the menu, left or right to change a setting or OK to enter a 'sub menu' screen (example).
