    Yes, that is why we have pre-filled income tax forms here.

    Of course it is scary to see how much the government knows about you already ... ;)

    It would be simple to have a verbose mode the user could enable/disable.

    There are unending number of UI improvements that could be implemented, from the very minor (grouping things better) to the very major; say, a complete redesign into something at least similar to smart phones circa ten years ago :)

    You will love it the first time and you will hate it if used more frequently. Even you have to press a button.

    Fuji has the Q-Menu and you will not see dos prompt lines. But is there another way as to list the items vertical? Every smartphone is doing it the same way

    As stated above, this option could be disabled. Presumably as the user becomes proficient it would no longer be needed. Or it could be re-enabled if the user wanted an explanation for a rarely used situation.

    FWIW, I have a different opinion and find professional cameras much easier in this regard. I know it is older technology and lacks a lot of the features of current cameras, but with my Canon 1Ds Mkii, pressing a combination of three buttons controls most camera settings. And virtually all settings are controlled directly by a button or dial somewhere on the camera. Apart from formatting cards, there is rarely a reason to even go into the menu. It is the simplest digital camera I own.

    We are talking about 2 different things. My replay addresses the behavior of the menu system. You are talking about "concepts".

    I guess I have a unique approach to camera menus. I figure out how to make the camera do what I want it to do when I first get it, and then I take pictures with it. With my X-T1 virtually everything I ever need to adjust for 99.99% of the shots I take is on one of the dials or function buttons. Formatting a card is about the only thing I dive into the menus for these days, and I know right where to find that.

    And if there were a modern, intuitive UI, there would be a lot more functions and features that would be easy/simple to use.

    Buttons and dials are great but there simply isn’t enough physical space to have every feature attached to one or the other.

    A well-designed intuitive UI means the user will get more out of the device, and with context-sensitive help, it could almost eliminate the need for a user manual.
