The free Canon Camera Manuals are a resource that many photographers take too lightly. As a young photographer I scoffed at using the camera manual.
I thought I knew all that I needed to about cameras and exposure. At that time everything was manual focus and my eyes were young and sharp.
There has also been a big improvement in how they are written and the depth of what they contain. Some of that is due to the ridiculous expansion of what digital cameras can do.
This Canon camera reviews site has several of them available and you can also find them at the www.usa.canon web site.
The manual I have for my Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2 is 91 pages and that's just for a simple canon camera accessory. Of course, a good part of the number of pages is due to the fact that it's written in 5 different languages.
One of the pieces of advice I once wrote about on the better-digital-photo tips.com website is to read your free camera manual as soon as you get your new camera.
I know this sounds quite boring and it's not something I used to do. Blogging about digital photography has caused me to follow some of my own advice.
When I first purchased my Canon Speedlite 580 EX (which has been replaced by the ever-so-popular 580 EX II ), I followed my own advice.
I sat down at the table with my camera, my flash, and the manual.
It was a smart thing to do. There were several features I was completely unaware of and would have not taken advantage of, had I not read the manual first.
Another good use of a camera's manual is to read it BEFORE you buy a camera. That's right. What a great way to get to understand what capabilities a camera has!
There is a fairly big demand for people using search engines.
Typing in the words " free canon camera manual" is done frequently.
Is it because photographers have lost their manual?
Perhaps they are just looking for a quick answer about their Canon camera?
I wonder if you could help answer that question for me. If you found this page by searching, why were you searching and specifically what were you searching for?
You were looking for some specific information about something. I'd like to make this site more useful to you.
