Hi Trout, go t this link for the manual, quick start etc

http://home.fujifilm.com/products/di...600/index.html

Never heard of not being able to download the manual - I downloaded the 9500 manual long before I bought the camera - very strange.

Its a pleasure Joe, I'm very happyI could help. You have bought a very good camera indeed.The first camera I bought was the 5500 which is the predecesor to your camera. I still have it although I have just recently bought the 9500 which I am equally delighted with.

The 5500 has never failed meand despite my kak-handed endeavours, it hasnever failed toproduce a great result. It'san ideal camera, in my opinion, with which to get into the hobby. It has a very fool-proof Auto mode and then the PASM modes for when you want to start exploring more. I believe the 5600 is every bit as good as the 5500 and more. You are going to have a lot of fun with it - I would read the manual through a good few times to get a feel for what the camera is about and you will findever willing and helpful assistance here, foranything that needs further explanation (we also have more than a few computer boffins here as well).

Happy snapping - looking forward to seeing you post some pics.

Steve

It's true, to download a manual from the fujifilm.co.uk site you have to have registered your camera with them and it has to be the model you want to download for. If you have bought it from pixmania then you can't register the camera because it's consodered as an import. I would have though that this was against some european law as there is meant to be free trade within Europe from France. Anyway I got round this problem by simply going to fujifilm.com instead of fujifilm.co.uk as you don't need to register for downloads with the American site, it's a bit pathetic really.
