The play menu has all the options you might expect but also includes the 'View Mode' option that allows you to switch between viewing stills, MP4 movies and AVCHD movies.

Memory menu

Unlike most other brands, Sony likes to write an image database file to the memory card (and the camera will sometimes ask to update this database at startup if you've used your card in another camera). All the settings relating to this, including new folder creation and folder selection are included in the 'memory' menu.

Time and date settings

We're not quite sure why the date and time settings in this menu merit an individual tab as most users will only change their camera's system time very rarely (if at all).

Setup menu

The last menu is the Setup menu which allows you to configure general camera settings such as USB transfer modes or language. You'll also find the settings for the GPS module in here. This menu is split across three pages and contains options such as viewfinder and LCD brightness if you need to change them.
