Well, I will be pretty interested as well in the user's manual in English, as I have it in German only [as well] and I definitely don't speak that language...

Is it possible that you send it to me as well?

Sounds to me like someone ought to be sending faxes hot and fast to Canon, urging them to catch up with the 21st century and place their manuals online. :shock:

I just opened my box and had only a French manual . Could someone e-mail a virtual english version? I couldn't find one on the Canon site. Thanks.

mikeparris Feb 4, 2005 2:21 PM

Mine is in French. Would you mind sending along your English version to [email protected]? Thanks!

mikeparris Feb 4, 2005 2:23 PM

Agree fully. Mine is in French! I couldn't even find electronic flashes listed on their produce site, let along a pdf 420EX download.

I run a website - if someone can email me the Canon 420EX Speedlite english manual, I'll be happy to post it on the website for others to download. I'll reply to this thread with the link once it's posted.

Can someone email me the .pdf? thanks

The English .pdf manual for the 420EX Speedlite can be found here:

Note that this isn't great quality - it looks like someone scanned it into the computer. I spoke with Canon and they claim not to have a softcopy of the manual.
