Menus (contd.)

As mentioned on the previous page the custom settings are split into six alphabetical color coded categories, this makes it easier to remember a specific option and quicker to enter the custom settings menu at the correct position. You can still scroll through all custom settings options as one big menu if you wish. Note that on the D2H's menu an asterisk (*) next to a custom setting means that it has been changed to something other than the camera default. In the descriptive menu lists below a green superscript one (¹) indicates the camera default setting.
