The following manuals are not copied or scanned from original
Canon manuals. They are wholly original works written to complement
and sometimes substitute for the originals. They contain more detail
and experience-based information, but are not as authoritative and lack
the diagrams and charts included with Canons booklets.
I havent written
manuals for any other models, particularly the digital series,
simply because the official manuals are now available as free downloads
from Canon and other sources. When I wrote this material it was hard
to find official documentation for a lot of Canon cameras, but that
is no longer the case.
