Different than the 990, Nikon have moved the setup menu from being a sub-menu of record and play mode to being it's own mode (selectable from the mode dial on top of the camera).
Split over two pages, there are a variety of options some of which affect only record mode some of which affect both modes.
Image Quality / Size
Hi - TIFF uncompressed
FULL - 2048 x 1536
Folders allows you to select the folder to use for storage of images, you can also create, rename and delete folders from this menu.
Monitor options allow you to change the way the LCD monitor is used, either default on and preview, or just review, just preview or LCD off. You can also set the brightness and hue of the LCD display. New to the 880 is the use of a standard test image when changing the brightness (as above). Would have been nice if this test image included a gray scale bar.
Set the power saving option for record mode (you can set play mode to follow these settings or have it's own power off setting).
Controls sets what options are saved between power off and power on. You can save any of the following settings:
By default all these controls are saved.
Pic data / Shot confirmation
Shot confirm enabled means the camera will flash the lamp on the front of the camera before each shot.
