Record Menu (P/A/S/M exposure modes)

The record menu is displayed over the live view (a black background used here for clarity) and is split across two pages. It has the standard Sony menu appearance of a row of options along the bottom of the screen with their 'settings menu' popping up as you scroll along.

Other mode menus are a subset of this menu (except scene and movie which have an additional menu option each).
