Help-K-5ii

Beginner trying to learn the menu system on my K-5ii. Manual says there are tabs for 4 modes: Rec, Playback, Set-Up and Custom Setting. When I press Menu, my camera only displays 3 tabs - the C tab (Custom Setting) is missing. Anyone have a similar experience? Thanks.

Take your camera out of green mode on the mode dial and you'll see the C menu.

If you want to start off with your camera making the exposure selections for you then use P instead as it will allow you to make changes if you want or need to opposed to having virtually no control.

Thanks for the tip Oldbayrunner - P sounds like a good one to start out with.
