Full Menus

The T's menu takes a little bit of getting used to: the camera doesn't have a four-way controller, so everything is controlled by touch alone. This, in turn, means that you don't get a conventional scrolling list of menu items, but instead a long grid of tiles, with nine on-screen at any time. The net result is a camera that behaves very much like a smartphone or tablet, but with a refreshingly pared-down interface.

The menu is accessed by pressing the Camera icon on the right of the screen, which first enters the user-customizable quick menu. Tapping the Toolbox icon top left then enters the full menu. To exit, there's a decidedly Android-esque 'Back' button; alternatively just tap the shutter button.

The initial quick menu is easily customized; tapping an on-screen '+' button allows you to add any of the main menu items to the list. To delete an option which you don't use, press and hold its on-screen button for a couple of seconds; a trash can icon then will appear in the right side, and dragging the on-screen button over it will remove the item from the menu.

The T's menu is presented as a long series of tiles, with 9 shown on-screen at any given time (in a 3x3 grid). It's remarkably simple for a modern camera, with 42 items in total.
Menu items work in two distinctly different ways. For those which have relatively few options, tapping the tile cycles through them.
Items with more options, or sub-options, open up into more conventional-looking lists. Selections often (but not always) have to be confirmed by pressing the on-screen 'SET' button.

Leica hasn't entirely re-invented the wheel, of course; most of the options on offer are carried over from its X-series cameras. What is has done, though, is make a generally-successful transition from a conventional button-driven menu system to one that works almost entirely by touch.
