Camera manuals

Quickly:

do you know where your camera manual is?

It is fairly easy to get one online.
Here is a link to oldtimerscamera.com where they will sell you one:
http://www.oldtimercameras.com/searc...pSubType_ID=45

If you are not willing to pay but don't mind doing some digging for them, here is what you do (as of 12/3/08):

Nikon
  • access the product list on nikon.com
  • click the model that you are interested in
  • on the right hand side of the screen, click the "product manual" link
Canon
  • click the camera model
  • click the "support and service" tab/link
  • under the guides section select the "camera user guide"
Casio
Kodak
Pentax
Epson

[EDIT]

Which manufacturers would you like to see added to this list?

Re: Camera manuals

Although, I love my Canon EOS 1DMark 3, I am always playing with the C Fn settings to get the best of Birds in Flight and Action Sports. I see so many differing settings for the same subjects that I have not found "peace".

I would love to see others suggestions. On the specifics of Birds in Flight, even the Canon issued guide on settings does not specifically target BIF!

Thanks

Re: Camera manuals

Have you read this article?
http://www.openphotographyforums.com...Morris_001.php

The author talks about some of his challenges regarding shooting birds in flight using, I think, your camera.

Re: Camera manuals

Thanks Frank! Yes, I have seen this post by Art Morris which was very early in the history of the camera. I did purchase his Cd Mark 3 guide. It was updated, but still not late enough in the process to comment on Canon's latest suggestions which as I said above, do not mention BIF.

Although Art points out his advanced age, I have about a decade on him and I am perhaps looking for the camera to do more "focus acquisition". Little chance of me combining "prefocus" with sensor on the birds eye, and still keep the bird as at least a third of the frame.

So, I am still looking for some definitive C. Fn settings for BIF, post Canon's final recommendations. Thanks again!
