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

Please ignore, if possible, stratospheric priced cameras.

Thanks

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.

LOL.

Obviously to me, not an intuitive thing!

But once you know, you'll never forget it! LOL.

Take care & Happy Shooting!

I cannot recall the years (around 1970), but for a while VW had an electric clutch with their stick shift. Touch the shift knob in the right manner and the clutch would dis-engage so you could complete the gear change. I did not know about this "feature" and made a mess of trying to drive a friend's VW.

ohwell

I had to look that one up! LOL.

VW Autostick! Too cool!

That reminds me of a 2012 Jeep Compass I drove for a few weeks.

It had a Jatco CVT automatic transmission, but it had a feature where you could drive it like a clutchless manual transmission.
