G16 Manual
Dec 10, 2013

My new G16 arrived yesterday .... playtime 

A quick Q for any existing owners .... it arrived with no manual ? .... not even a CD.

OK ... I have downloaded the manual, is there no printed manual available, previous Canon cameras have had a printed manual ... in something like 3"x 5" format.

Useful for when travelling with camera.

Canon PowerShot G16

With most canon cameras nowdays, you have to print your own at Kinko's or Office Depot.
You got gipped and should have had a CD at least.

The G-series is a pretty basic camera with conventional controls.
Put the camera through it's paces at home with the manual handy for reference and it's unlikely that you'll need to reference it that often in the future.

I printed the manual (all 214 pages!) with 2 pages per page and double-side printing, but ultimately found it easier to read the pdf on-screen. I agree with the previous comment, that the G series is fairly intuitive to operate (as are most Canons). But it is helpful to have the manual for the few new gems you might find. I do miss the tidy little booklet!

I have a Getting Started Guide in mine. It is approximately 30 pages and on the front it has a reference to download the manual from the Canon Website. No CD.
