Custom Menu 2

Custom menu 2 is what we'd normally see referred to as the 'setup' menu; here you'll find menus for a range of camera (rather than shooting) options, including basics such as date/time and video output format. Why Olympus chose to lump so many options into menu 1 that could be here is inexplicable (how often do you change the print dpi, USB mode or back light timer, for example?).
