Like other digital cameras, DSLRs are highly customizable. It's worth while to work through the instruction manual, examine every menu setting, and make an intelligent choice, since what suits you will often be different from what suits an ordinary daytime photographer. What follows is a checklist of important menu settings.
Note that the full menu is not likely to be visible unless the camera is set to one of its full-control modes, preferably M. If you turn on the camera in one of its "simple" modes, the more advanced parts of the menu will be inaccessible.
