Menus

The addition of the QS menu to the DP2 has solved many of our frustrations about the menu system, which is now much more sensibly arranged: commonly accessed features live in QS, occasionally-changed settings live in the main menu and underlying camera settings are changed by selecting 'Setup' on the mode dial.

The main, capture menu has contains 21 items, the most commonly accessed of which are duplicated on the QS menus. Using the menus is occasionally a little odd: sub menus can only be escaped using the display button (obviously) but sub-sub menus are escaped using the menu button, which exits the menu system altogether if pressed in a sub menu.
