As digital cameras have become increasingly advanced, the menu structures have invariably become more complicated, too. That said, the menu structure and appearance on Canon's EOS cameras has generally remained consistent throughout the years and latest models, meaning it shouldn't take long for Canon users to navigate the menu when  moving between cameras. 

That said, the sheer number of features crammed into modern EOS cameras means that there are now many more pages to get through compared with older cameras. On most of the best Canon cameras, you'll find a Red Shooting menu, a Blue playback menu and the the Yellow Set-up menu.
