Record Menu (P, Tv, Av, M, C1, C2 modes)
Pressing the MENU button in record mode displays the camera menu, note that Canon has tweaked the menu design, the use of colored borders and the position 'scroll bar' down the right hand side. Also different is that the background is now opaque.
As you move down the menu it scrolls two options before the bottom so you can always see what option is coming.
