Re: reading the manual...

I don't know about you guys, but I generally read the manual BEFORE I purchase the camera. That's really the only way to know if the tool can do everything you need it to do. With my first DSLR (5 cameras ago) I read the PDF manual twice before I decided to go ahead and order the camera.

While most probably don't take the time to to this, I suspect many would surprise themselves at how much easier it is to operate the camera if they did.

Did I have questions afterward? Yes, certainly a few with my first dslr... and folks here helped me out. Now I try to help others when I can because I enjoy it and it feels good to save folks some of the same frustration I've had at times myself.

I've downloaded and read mauals for most of the DSLRs Canon has released the last 9 years even if I'm not purchasing the particluar camera. I do this simply because I want to know what the new features are and how they work. Usually the same features show up in other cameras down the road.
