I need an operator's manual for my operator's manual...

I received a new camera for Christmas. It's a nifty little thing and pretty intuitive but now it is time to learn a little more about how it works.

I reopen the box. No manual.

But there is a CD.

So I pop in the CD. It opens up in Photoshop (as a PDF file) and is indeed and operator's manual but the way it opens you have to know which page you want to look at.

Or you have to close it down and reopen it for every page.

Or I'm doing something wrong.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Go to the manufacturer's WWW site and see if they have a "normal" manual available on-line.

Download Adobe Reader.

This is a free program to open up PDF files and such. Unlike Photoshop, however, it'll open up all the pages at once (hopefully, unless the CD creators are really that inept).

There's a chance that you may need to set it up as the default PDF reader first, if you need help with that later on, I'll guide you through the process.

Thanks, Individual.

A walkthrough?

Ummm ....

How about - how do I find out what version of Window's I'm using so I can get through step 1 of the download.

I should probably mention that I am a total computer idiot.

Oh!

And thank you too, fishin'

I really would like to have a hard copy of it. I'm pretty good with cameras and can figure out the basics without much problem but I always keep the manuals for some of those tougher issues.

I really want to figure out how to over-ride the depth of field in this camera and some flash issues that seem to plague me. I really like to be able to open a book and find what I need.

Is this manual-less stuff the new trend?

I HATE it.

One way to find your windows version is to go into My Computer... select Help.... select About... you will see all of the info there.

Oooops.

Had to reboot.

Perhaps I'll try this on Mr. B's computer!

Don't forget to set your VCR so that it stops blinking at 12:00.

My VCR doesn't even have a clock.

Wait....

Maybe it does.......

Really, I looked to find out what version and I clicked it and my computer started beeping and it wouldn't stop.

I might be dumb but I'm no idiot.

Well, I would just try it again. Or go to your Control Panel, select System, and everything will be listed on the right.

Oh, and keep searching your VCR. I'm sure it's hidden somewhere. Just start pushing random buttons and hitting it violently. Then buy a new one that actually has a little blinking clock.

I'm telling you, hitting electronic equipment always fixes the problem.
