Pressing the FUNC button in record mode overlays the FUNC menu over the live scene preview (black background used here for clarity).

Each setting appears in the same place as its icon. Use the up and down arrows to move through the menu and left and right to change. Some options have sub-menus which can be accessed by pressing the SET button.

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.
