I own a few manuals but not that many. I have scanned the ones I have and I'm placing the scans in the public domain. For everything else
I've tried to find scans that are free on the internet. If you want a manual and you can't find it, you'll need to try one of the
pay sites listed at the end.
Manuals I've scanned are in PDF format. Offsite manuals may be in other formats.
I have a few items listed which have no link. That means I plan to add it shortly but it's not yet available. Feel free to contact me and ask for it.

Right click on the link and choose "Save Target As..." (or whatever your browser says). If you just click on it,

Flash (Strobes) and Everything Else
Scanned by Others (offsite)
I've linked to websites that offer free manuals on a title page, rather than directly to the file. Hopefully
if the files move around, you'll still be able to find them this way. Please note that these are all
websites for which I have no affiliation, partnership, nor control over.
Sources for Manuals and Documentation
These sites have scans of manuals for free
These sites charge for manuals (originals or reprints)
- Craig Camera: I am told that they are closed but that Craig's family is still fulfilling orders. If you need something, order it now.
- Finger Lakes Photo Books: expensive but they have a big catalog
- Old Timer Cameras: If you can't find it, try different keyword searches. Their database is finicky.
