Default 730 owners manual

Where can I get (online, pdf) 730UZ manual?
The Olympus home page only has it for 720.

Thanks.

Olympus does not post owners manuals on their web site for newer model cameras. They say that this is undermind the gray market camera vendors. If you lost your manual, contact Olympus for a new one.

Actually you can download their manuals from the Olympus UK website:
http://www.olympus.co.uk/consumer/di...ds/manuals.cfm

Unfortunatly they don't have the 730's manual online yet.

Are you like me and like to read over manuals before you buy a product? I find that this gives as much insight as any review.

I was just about to offer to e-mail it to you as a one off, but I've noticed that they actually have the full manual on Oly's US site (and the quick start guide and the basic manual)

C-730 Ultra Zoom Quick Start Guide (526KB)
C-730 Ultra Zoom Basic Manual (3.8MB)
C-730 Ultra Zoom Reference Manual (9.3MB)

All the above are PDF format so you may want to right-click and save to your computer.

Actually, Olympus America site has ALL the C- and D- series (and other) cameras' manuals in PDF format. Not only manuals, but quick start guides and reference manuals, too.

Here's the link:

Simply pick the camera model from the pull-down menu at the bottom of the screen. I just checked and they had the C-730UZ manuals there.

The policy in the past at Olympus has been to ONLY post all the manuals for cameras no longer in production. For instance, the C-720 manuals weren't available until after the C-730 came out...this is to reduce grey-market sales, i.e. a camera brought over to the US from Japan with the Japanese manuals, and then resold with US manuals downloaded from the Olympus site.

Now, does this mean that a new C-7x0 is coming out soon, that posting the manuals were a mistake, or that this is a change in policy...we'll have to wait and see.
