Camera Menus

The G1 fits its many options onto 16 pages of menus. These are further broken down into five categories: Record, Custom Menu, Setup, the customizable My Menu and Playback.

It's unusual to find options where you don't expect them, helping to minimize your use of the menu system.

Note that you get a much smaller set of menus in full Auto mode.
