James's Camera Collection: Manuals and Documentation

Manuals and Documentation

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.

PDF iconManuals 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.

Scanned by Me (on-site)

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


Movie Cameras (Ciné) and Projectors

Light Meters

Exposure meters have been moved to this location.

Enlargers and Darkroom Equipment

Darkroom and Equipment manuals

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.
