Record Menu

The C-40Z features the same new 4-way menu system we first saw on the C-700UZ. On the first page the MODE MENU option is fixed, the other three can be reconfigured to jump into the record menu for a particular option. The main record mode menu is split across four sections (Camera, Picture, Card, Setup) indicated by a menu tab on the left side. Normally this is displayed over (semitransparent) the live view.

*1 Oddly the C-40Z provides 16 more horizontal and 8 more vertical pixels in SHQ mode; 2288 x 1712, in TIFF and HQ mode this size is the '4 megapixel regular' 2272 x 1704. Weird.

Playback Menu

Just like the record menu the initial 'entry' into the play menu is via this four-way quick access screen. From here you can choose to start a slideshow, change the information overlay detail (select INFO), mark the image for printing (DPOF) or enter the main play mode menu.

Normally this 4-way quick access screen and menu are displayed over (semitransparent) the reviewed image.
