    Have you found the few pages in English yet?

    Wotcha bought KT?  :)
    I didn't use my manual much either - just footled around with it, although DavidK, who used to post here, showed me a few bits and pieces to try with it too.
    It's like a lot of things though - there'll probably be lots of things you won't use  :)

    I used to have a client who was on the Board of Nokia . He was always banging on at me to buy a phone. Hubby got a new Nokia phone and I took great delight in telling Mr Nokia Director;
    " The instruction manual runs to 147 pages, but nowhere does it tell you how to adjust the volume. When I went into the Nokia shop in Guildford the guy behind the counter said "no point looking in the manual, it's not in there" "
    He did have to the good grace to look embarrassed.

    So lucky to get a manual of any sorts. Most things these days expect you to look on line. What did you get @KT53 ?

    The entire manual is English.  Camera is Canon EOS77D.  It comes with a very basic manual but doesn't describe the functions of the various knobs and whistles.  Although I've been using digital SLR's for years they all have different features.  I've bought a copy of the manual on line for a fiver.  Canon wanted 20 quid for the same thing.
