Just thought i would mention that most of the ones on ebay.ca do have an actual owners manual. I contacted one of the camera ebay online stores and he confirmed that his does come with an actual manual book form.

I cursed Fuji because I wanted a printed C6-sized manual in North-eastern Kisuaheli language.

The point is that we should not have to print our own manual. A full-blown manual would add no more than a few bob to the price of the camera.

They include a quick-start booklet in 3 other languages, so why not in English?

Judging by the slimness of your instruction booklet, I guess you have been very selective in choosing what pages to print out.

Says who? Holy Pope Benedict?

Then you should buy a camera with an ENGLISH manual. There are manufacturers, they add booklets in 3 languages, other add NO manual, but on CD in 27 languages.

No, I have printed WHOLE THE BOOK! My Canon printer prints double sided = duplex print. Each Canon ink cartridge ~ € 0.30, 500 sheet A4 paper ~ € 3.50

Oh, I see now. I should go and buy a duplex printer, a ream of paper and binder just to print out a hard copy of instructions for this camera. Not everyone has a computer let alone a printer.

If you have a printer for long time, then you have to use it. Otherwise it is a dusk collecting toy.

A printer without duplex & CD/DVD/BluRay printing also is a toy like a HelloKittyCam.

Well, that relegated my three printers to the trash then, eh? Solid advice!

Nice pic, PegasusUK

re: Earlier discussion about suitability of a screen shade. I bought the Delkin 3" shade/screen protector from Amazon and can assure anyone who is thinking of getting one that it fits perfectly on the HS10.
