Default New just bought OMD EM 10ii

Great site.
I have the instruction manual and find it lacking for someone who is new to digital cameras. I have been unable to find a 3rd party instruction manual for this camera- OMD EM 10ii?

Is there a more detailed instruction manual from Olympus or from anyone else?

Thanks

If you are hung up on something let us know. Most of the Olympus cameras menus are pretty similar and the menu system can be quite complex for someone not use to all the customization options Olympus gives, but for basic shooting, once you have a few basics set up you can forget most of the menus.

...Olympus do make available downloadable COMPLETE manuals in .PDF format

Here is a link http://tinyurl.com/y8atgp87 for the M10 II. Click on the instructions link, then, the manual download.

I love Olympus but the menus are the worst until you get used to them. Sometimes it seems like they intentionally make things hard to find. There's a giant amount of flexibility in that though once you get everything how you want it.

It also still annoys me that you can spend multiple hundreds of dollars on something and they can't be bothered to include a paper manual.

It appears that this online manual is the same as the one that came with the body.

I found this to be helpful in some instances - compilation of short instructional video on some menu items.
