Camera Menus

The L10's menus are split into four vertically tabbed, color-coded groups; Record menu (red), Setup menu (yellow), Custom menu (blue) and Play (green). Use the four-way controller to move down the tabs, press right to enter the menu and change settings (you can also use the dials to scroll through menus and settings). Each menu is described below.

Record menu

The record menu provides for configuration of settings which will affect the final image file, these include the 'film mode' (image parameters / color and tone mapping) as well as image size / quality and mode. We were pleased to see many of the niggling issues (including hiding certain functions away in the custom menu) that we complained about with the L1 have been fixed in this camera).
