The write up is very clear and concise and it is very easy to follow.

Much easer to read than the extra-small instruction book that comes with the camera. This is especially true for aging eyes. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Steve
The owner's manual is detailed, but lacks a good overview. This Guide delivers a well-rounded overview that stands by itself, and is perfectly complementary to the manual.Published 20 months ago by OC Dan
