Graphical Menu System


Casio QV-2300UX

As with past Casio cameras (QV-2000, QV-8000), the QV-2300's menu system is very graphical. This is the first of two pages displayed when the Menu button is pressed while in Record mode.

The first four icons represent pre-programmed scene modes, the fifth icon "SCENE" leads you off to 31 screens of scene modes (see below). The Function icon leads you off to 3 sub-menus which are also shown below.

Page 2 of the Record Menu lets you change to Movie mode in either normal or Past mode. You can also enable the Panorama or Interval recording modes.
