Next, there are three rows of three buttons each – these are for eight preset picture modes (such as Bright Cinema, Reference, Cinema Film 2, etc.)
There are buttons for each of the eight provided modes plus one labeled User, where the user can create a ninth, custom mode based on one of the provided modes.
Below that, we find the directional keypad – four arrow keys in a circular formation, with Enter in the center. Clockwise around the directional keypad, there are three curved buttons at the 10, 2, and 6 o’clock positions. The bottom button is Menu, the one at 2 o’clock is Reset, and at the 10 o’clock position is the Position button.
The Position button lets you toggle through three sub-menus: Focus, Zoom, and Lens shift.
As noted previously, there is no lens memory. If you choose to go with a widescreen such as a 2.35:1 or 2:40:1 “Cinemascope” type screen, you’ll be changing the zoom and lens shift using the position button and its sub-menus, petty much anytime you want to change aspect ratios – like when you go from most movies (widescreen) to standard TV’s 16:9. Rather than a one button operation to go back and forth, this will require your attention for 30 seconds or so to readjust zoom etc. I’ve been going back and forth with the aspect ratio several times each day I’ve been working with the VW295ES, and find having to do “lens memory” manually is just not that big of a deal.
The next set of buttons – nine more to be precise, are shortcuts directly to the appropriate sub-menus. These convenient buttons are: Aspect, MotionFlow (CFI), 3D, Color Space, Color Temp, Color Correction, Gamma Correction, Contrast Enhancer, and Reality Creation (detail enhancement).
There are three rocker switches toward the bottom, and those let you toggle Volume, Brightness, and Contrast.
