Menus:

Like most cameras of its class the menus are fairly simple and straightforward.

 

Photo Options:

The three photography menus cover the various basic elements of photo taking. Most of these parameters are much more easily accessible through a combination of buttons and the command dial. If you are using the menu button to access these parameters then I suggesting checking out the manual so you can save yourself some time in the field.

Movie Options:

The Movie menu has options that include movie resolution.  320x240, 640x480, 1280x720 and 1920x1080 are all selectable in 30fps modes.  There is an additional option for 1280x720 to record at 60fps.  Quality can be selected between normal and high quality as well.  I don't know why anyone would want poor quality video, but I guess if you want to save a bit of space, there is that option.

There is a "Multi-Motion" option that allows you to record video at 1x, 5x, 10x or 20x.  Think of this as a quick and easy time-lapse option.   If you choose to record video 480p and lower, you will have the additional option to record at 0.5x and 0.25x.  This allows you to shoot slow motion video and is equivalent of in-camera 60fps and 120fps recording with playback at 30fps.  It's not super slow-motion, but it's a fun and interesting effect.

User Options:

The user menu has a few interesting options.  ISO Customizing  sets the granularity at which you can control camera sensitivity.  You can choose between 1/3 or 1 EV.  You can also set how high the ISO will adjust when choosing "Auto" mode. You will also find the option of turning the AF Lamp on or off. This is handy in museums or performance settings where it is prohibited to have a flash or AF assist activated. You can also customize button functions on the camera and can specify functions such as One Touch White Balance, Optical Preview, One Touch RAW+, Reset or AEL.

Setup Options:

The last three menus deal with general setup options. Here you can change display brightness and color, display timeouts, and sounds. This is also where you adjust your AV output options, and upgrade your firmware.

As stated before there are not a lot of menu options but they are well laid out and simple to understand even without the help of the manual.
