Recent settings/My menu

To help speed up the use of such long menus, the D3000 allows fast access to commonly-used menu options by grouping the twenty most recently used settings in the 'Recent Settings' menu. Leaving the camera set to show Recent Settings is a good way of keeping track of which menu options you regularly use, although because this menu is fluid, it is less versatile than a customizable 'my menu'-type tab, of the sort found in Nikon's higher level DSLRs.
