Menus

Just like all previous Nikon digital SLR's the D2H's menus are split into four categories; Playback, Shooting, Custom Settings (CSM) and Set Up. The D2H uses a smaller font than the D1 series (room for eight options vertically instead of six) and divides its Custom Settings (CSM) into six color coded categories. Navigation of the menus is very logical, up and down to navigate, right to enter a menu / option setting.

Shooting / CSM menu banks

When working in the Shooting or CSM menus you are in effect changing the settings of a 'menu bank'. There are four banks for each of the Shooting and CSM menus (A - D), each bank can be given a more meaningful label and the currently selected bank letter is indicated on the rear control panel for quick reference. This is very useful for quickly switching between a type of shot or situation.
