    Hi Group

    Subject says it all really.

    Have got a No-Print pdf file.

    Is there a PRINTABLE version out there?

    Regards, Ron

    I've just looked at the Nikon web site and once you have
    registered you can download the User Manual. It says that only
    manuals published after 2008 are unprintable, so if that is where
    you got your copy you should be able to print it.

    Have you looked at Tom Hogan's web site http://www.bythom.com/ ?
    His ebook user guide is much more comprehensive and informative
    than anything by Nikon albeit it does cost $29.95. I have a D70s
    and knew nothing about how it meters etc until I read his book -
    worth every penny as far as I'm concerned.

    Have you tried using something other than Acrobat to open the pdf?

    I've just downloaded and printed it (or at least the first half-dozen pages)
    fine, using Ubuntu Linux, so there are tools which will print it.

    Is there a Windows port of xpdf or gpdf, for example?

    Tiny bit more investigation reveals that Ubuntu uses a program called
    "evince" to open pdfs by default, and that there is a Windows port of it
    downloadable here;

    http://www.umbio.com/download/software/software.asp

    Only a 30-day trial, but that should be enough.

    I thought that the Nikon manuals were printable [except in the USA] All
    mine are.

    Ask on Nikonians they will know

    That's a totally different program with the same name. It's easy to
    run something like Ubuntu LiveCD to access Linux applications for
    occasional use, rather than trying to find a version that runs under
    Windows.

    Oh. Bother. Thanks.

    I was trying to help the O/S disadvantaged, many of whom may find booting
    a different O/S rather challenging. Personally, I run Windows XP as a
    VM under VirtualBox if I need reminding how horrible it is.

    My original post was as a result of wanting the manual before buying the
    camera to check things out.

    I have now bought a different make, daren't tell you which, or you'll flame
    me :)

    Thanks everyone for your responses, one thing it has proved is that this NG
    is alive, well and kicking.

    Thanks.

    I used to be an Olympus man through and through. Several Olympus bodies
    and thousands of pounds worth of lenses and accesories. Then Olympus
    went digital and unlike Nikon, royally shafted their loyal customers. No
    digital backs for the OM series. No lens compatibility. Nothing.


    I went elsewhere. And I hope Olympus go out of business.

    Yes, I feel for you.

    Used to have OM10 (never any trouble) with various bits, perhaps not as
    extensive as yours, sold it several months ago and now back on the Olympus
    bandwagon :)

    Last digital was a Minolta Dimage A1.

    Yes.

    But it was the lens thing that primarily drove me away.

    Olympus went with the better technical solution of producing new kit
    designed from the ground up for digital, rather than handicapping the
    new kit with backward compatibility for 35mm. In the short term that's
    going to hurt, but in the longer term it should mean it has better
    product. As the camera market is heavily influenced by brand loyalty
    only time will tell if Olympus has shot itself in the foot by
    alienating a section of its existing users or if it will gain
    sufficient performance advantage with the new format.

    Neither have mechanically timed shutters, but the Nikon F3 had the Kodak
    DCS-100 back, and the Leica R8/R9 can take the Digital Modul R. Both are
    manual focus cameras.

  18. We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the
    drugs began to take hold. I remember Huge <>
    saying something like:

    True. Nobody else did either, except at horrendous prices, and they were
    a total kludge.

    >No lens compatibility. Nothing.


    Oh dear. Try again.
