    Great. But s a newbie trying to set menus, why do some of them appear gray and when the wheel is turned menu items are skipped?
    Thanks,
    Peter

    Hi Peter - it could be that you're in an operational mode where the item is greyed out because it's set automatically for that mode.

    Try moving the mode dial to A(perture priority) - does that help?

    Cheers

    Thanks, Brian. I have noticed that when I change mode dial (A to M, etc.), the menu I'm working on is okay, but when I got to a new menu, same thing happens. Will keep trying. Really appreciate your videos. Have been a photographer for over 40 years and owned dozens of camera and never have I had one with soooo many menu items. Really taxing these old gray cells! So your suggestions are just very helpful!

    Believe me Peter, you are not alone! Initially these things drove me insane and I can't tell you how many times I've lost my customized setting by pressing the wrong choice inside the Reset menu.:redface: It does get better and sometimes there are settings I just ignore because I like to delude myself that they don't apply to me.:wink:

    Funny, I had the same issues last night when I ran through the menus. Awesome videos, much appreciated.
