Is there one camera manufacturer that stands out as a leader when it comes to intuitive menus?

Please ignore, if possible, stratospheric priced cameras.


I used to work at a camera store years ago and got familiar with all the major brands I was selling. I have also owned cameras from most major brands. Canon has the most intuitive menus if you ask me. I found Fuji menu system rather easy as well. anything with a touch screen makes it a bit easier too I believe.

Every camera I ever used had unintuitive menus until I learned how to use them.

Kinda reminds me of the manual transmission on my buddies old Volkswagen Rabbit.

He let me drive around a bit in it, but forgot to tell me that there was a trick in putting it into reverse.

I couldn't figure out how to put it into reverse. So when I pulled into a driveway, I had to push it backwards by hand out of the driveway.

NOTE: I was not a manual transmission noob. LOL. My 1st two cars had manual transmissions.

When I got back I asked him . . . ok, how do you put it into reverse?

And he said, oh, yeah. I forgot to tell you about that.

To put it into reverse, you have to push down on the stick as you are putting it into reverse.

I thought everyone knew this one...


It is "sooo" intuitive . . .

My son's car is like this actually. I like my pull up collar - very easy.

I drove a few manual transmissions before this one.

1985 Ford Courier, 1988 Toyota Tercel, 1988 Hyundai Excel, 1994 Ford Escort.

None of these manual transmissions required you to push the stick down in order to put it into reverse.

You just stomped on the clutch and pushed it in the direction of the gear you wanted.

Which to me seems more intuitive?

But I think, if I remember correctly, that BMW manual transmissions are the same way.

I don't know if that is a German thing or a Getrag thing.

Anywho . . . once you know it, you are good to go. Doesn't matter if it is intuitive or not. It still gets the job done!

Take care & Happy Shooting!
