Not quite.


The "My Settings" on the quick menu dial (now gone from P7800) on the other hand allows you quick access to a selection of up to 5 user-defined menu settings items that are otherwise buried somewhere in the menus and which are not available on the quick menu dial directly. My own selection for "My settings" for example includes shortcuts to Metering, Flash exposure compensation, ND filter on/off, NR and ADL settings).

Regards, T.

I do have to agree that the "My Settings" position on the Quick menu dial is very handy indeed. I especially find myself going to it for changing to spot metering from matrix and and kicking in the ND filter (why don't other manufacturers offer a built-in ND? Panasonic Lumix G5 and G6, I'm looking at you!).
