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 suggest a perusal of the manual is in order.

User Options:

The user menu has a few interesting options.  EV Step sets the granularity at which you can control exposure compensation.  You can choose between 1/3 or 1/2 EV. Here 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.

It's nice that Samsung included noise reduction options in the menus but your choices are limited to on or off.

There are a few simple options here to enable grid lines or histogram.

User Display

 

 

I was very excited when I saw the key mapping menu in the user options. Usually key mapping is something reserved for higher models. Unfortunately there are not very many options to choose from. Two of the camera's buttons may be mapped and the options are very limited. Hopefully Samsung will expand on this good idea in future cameras or firmware upgrades.

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.
