Lumix DMC-G3 - what's in the box?
Dec 3, 2012

Hi,

To any DMC-G3 owners...

I have just taken delivery of a DMC-G3 but there is no manual in the box.  Neither on paper nor on CD.  Should there be one or both of these? Or are we expected to download the instructions?

The outside of the box does not show a list of contents so I don't know if this is normal these days.  The box is marked "UK Model" and I'm in the UK if that makes a difference.

There is a CD of free software that I have no interest in.  I cannot see the manual on that disk.

Many thanks....Paul

Ok.  If the manual is on the CD then I have the wrong CD, or there should be two.

On the CD I have there is:

  • Photofunstodio
  • Quicktime
  • Silkypix
  • Super Loiloscope

But no sign of the G3 manual.  I can download the instructions for my use ok but this is a gift and I'd rather it was complete.

Regards....Paul
