You access many camera features via menus, which, conveniently enough, appear when you press the Menu button. Features are grouped into six main menus, described briefly in Table 1-1.
After you press the Menu button, you see a screen similar to the one shown in Figure 1-8. The left side of the screen sports the icons shown in Table 1-1, each representing one of the available menus. The highlighted icon is the active menu; options on that menu automatically appear to the right. In the figure, the Shooting menu is active, for example.
I explain all the menu options elsewhere in the book; for now, just familiarize yourself with the process of navigating menus. The Multi Selector, labeled in the figure, is the key to the game. Press the edges of the Multi Selector to navigate up, down, left, and right through the menus.
In this book, the instruction “Press the Multi Selector left” means to press the left edge of the control. “Press the Multi Selector right” means to press the right edge, and so on.
