    Does anybody know where the Canon EOS 50e / ELAN IIe instruction manual is
    available for download, perhaps in pdf format?
    It does exist as people are selling it on ebay.
    Canon, the supposed digital imaging company only offer a photocopy for 7
    quid.

    I have not managed to find a copy of the original manual anywhere,
    but there's an on-line alternative:

    http://www.eosdoc.com/manuals.asp?q=ElanII

    There appears to be a .pdf version of this:

    Hope this helps. It certainly helped me with my EOS 50e!

  3. You should try to find a copy of "The Magic Lantern Guide" for this
    camera, it's far superior to the Canon book.

    Only if you like page after page of errors omissions and flat out lies.
    This is a case where the Canon manual is superior in almost every way. The
    Magic Lantern book is only better with examples of flash.

    For Elan II manual look at http://eosdoc.com/manuals.asp?q=ElanII
    I have three manuals for this camera. The one that came with it, one
    that I downloaded and the Magic Lantern. The Canon ones are very basic
    and do not do any explaining of the different settings, only tell what
    they are. I very seldom refer to the Canon manuals. The Magic manual
    is much better in all aspects because it is also a narrative manual
    that explains why and how you can use the different settings. The only
    part I don't like is the flash section that deals mainly with the
    Canon flashes (Speedlites). Because the II has so many features it
    takes a while to get familiar with them all. If a certain feature is
    not used in a while then you can go back to the Magic manual to
    refresh your memory. I believe that the Magic manual was worth every
    penny.

    Absolutely, worth every penny. In particular the explanation on the
    different metering modes covers essential details that are entirely left out
    in the Canon manual. However I would make sure you get both.
