Record mode menus

Record menu

The C-2500L record menu is fairly logical with everything to be found on four pages, when you first use the menu system it can feel a little clunky but soon becomes fairly quick to use (full description of record menu options below).

Manual whitebalance

Setting the Whitebalance manually displays this target icon, aim the camera at a white source (white paper / wall / gray object) and hit OK, if the camera gets a good white balance from your selection "GOOD" is displayed
