OK Supplement to Manual
on February 4, 2013
The book is OK as a supplement for, not a replacement of, the manual. The manual is shorter, yet has more comprehensive illustrations. The book is written conversationally rather than as a to-the-point reference volume. The book's index is much better than the manual's, but still incomplete, e.g., no entries for "LCD" (it's called the display), "light" or "low-light." The text omits some simple things, e.g., how to turn on the display without extending the lens. (Press playback.) The search function on the Kindle version is OK, but does not allow searching for multiple words that don't appear in the order searched, e.g., "display" and "playback". It also doesn't highlight what's found. The table of contents has no page numbers, but entries do link to the pages. The index begins with an alphabet list for quick-link to the index section for that letter, but it invariably ends up a letter or two off. The few pages of appendices are informative. The Kindle's ability to highlight and add notes is very helpful. The book is worth the Kindle price, not the hardcopy price.
