A-REC menu


The auto record menu is kind of limited to a few options (keep it simple stupid). This is basically a subset of the Manual RECORD menu (described more fully below).

M- REC menu


This is a composite of the Manual RECORD menu, cunningly you can use the command wheel () to change many of the options (indicated by the small <--> icon below the menu), just move up and down and scroll the wheel. You just don't HAVE to go into the sub-menus to change an option. Great (about time).

Menus are navigated using the zoom buttons and menu options are selected by pressing the shutter release (BacK always takes you to the previous menu), below is shown an example of a sub-menu:

Nice use of colours and icons makes using (and geting used to) the menus a cinch, combined with the command wheel it's easy and quick to get in and out of the menu.
