-   -   Immediate problem with my new A590-IS (

I just bought this from Amazon about a month ago. Just getting around go going through it and learn about it.

Right off the bat, I decided I wanted to play with the flash for test shots, and on p.87 of the manual, it has: "Displaying and Setting [Flash Settings]".

Anyway, it says to press the "menu" button and then choose the tab with the camera iron on it, the first one on the left; from there, you arrow down to "Flash Settings", press the "Func. Set" button, and make your changes to the settings, and so on.

The problem is MY A590-IS does not give me that tab when I press "Menu".

My tabs are from left to right: a blue tab with a right arrowhead inside a frame, then an icon for printer, and then tool icons (toolbox?).

Did I get a weird camera? Where is the camera settings tab in Menu?

What to do now?

D'oh! I made the rookie mistake of having the switch set to display pics instead of take pics. Now that I'm in take pics mode, it's there. Sorry for dumb overlook.
