Manuals / Brochures / Ads

  • Boggy’s web site - Kiron, Vivitar and Paragon/Elicar lenses: specifications and user manuals
  • Camera Manual Library by Butkus - the content of many instruction manuals in the HTML format is messed up after OCR, many instruction manuals are scanned incompletely and/or in poor quality, at the beginning of each PDF a "copyrighted" page is inserted that disallows the distribution of scanned material without the written permission of the author of the copyrighted page (Butkus). A first class example of how not to publish instruction manuals. However, it is listed here due to the large volume of material dedicated to cameras and lenses.
  • IanB Foto - User manuals and brochures for Bronica, Mamiya, Metz and and Fuji GX680 cameras and lenses
  • An online library of photo related PDF files by Pacific Rim Camera - A much better alternative to Butkus, but not as comprehensive
  • Pentax manuals, brochures and advertising material
