The DCS 760's menu system has a 'drop down' style which is split into five menus:
Folder / Card selection
* Only appears if Video Out is enabled.
Note that the description of menus on this page were taken from a camera with firmware 1.3.1, a new firmware is expected towards 'the end of the summer' which will include in-camera JPEG generation and will no doubt add some new menu options.
Folder / Card selection menu
This menu allows you to select the active folder, once at least one shot has been taken in the new folder (such as '02') the camera will automatically create the next folder. All images from now onwards are recorded in the selected folder. Image browsing only shows images in the currently selected folder.
If multiple storage cards are inserted this menu has a second section which allows you to switch cards.
This menu provides access to the three main 'sub-menus' within the camera:
Main Menu (digital portion control)
Each of these menus is described in more detail below.
White Balance Menu
Select White balance:
The DCS 760 allows you to save custom WB into files on the storage card, they can even be renamed at a later date to be given sensible English names like 'Studio' or 'Showroom'.
Video Out Menu
This menu option only appears if you have enabled the Video Out option.
The DCS 760's video out doesn't work in the same way as other digital cameras (or digital SLR's), instead it's only capable of displaying a review or full size playback image (no menus, no zoom, no thumbnails).
This could be useful for reviewing (but not magnifying...) on a larger monitor in a studio environment.
This menu option allows you to quickly adjust the contrast of the LCD Monitor to compensate for different ambient light levels, typically the center portion of the display would show the currently selected image, on the left a grayscale bar helps tuning.
