Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Focusing and menu options, part of Canon 60D Essential Training.
When you're in Movie mode, you get a very different set of menus than you do when…you're in any other mode.

I've got Live mode, which is our default, which is…fairly slow, I've got facial recognition, and I've got Quick mode. We're going to…talk more about auto focus in a minute.…I can control which button I want to use for start -- for triggering auto focus.…

If I don't like third stop increments, I can…go higher, and that kind of thing.…Highlight tone priority is another one that you're probably already familiar with.…Movie recording size is a fairly important option.
