The Creative Presets Menu comprises a selection of presets, represented by icons.

The Standard preset is always the first preset on the right. When this is selected, it means that the standard video feed from the camera is in use without an adjustments being applied.
The Standard + preset is shown in the selected state in the screenshot above. The Standard+ preset gives the same visual appearance as Standard but with the additional benefit of a Saturation Adjustment control.
