    Hi, all.

    First off, many many thanks to all the great posters here who are
    willing to contribute to people like me who don't always know where to
    turn for info -- it's *greatly* appreciated, and my coming out of
    lurking needs to have that statement at the very top.

    Now here's my story -- I'm finally making the move from my Kodak DC5000
    point and shoot, which has served me well and faithfully for over 4
    years and 13,000 shots in doing location scouting for TV. (Hey -- my
    previous digital was an Apple Quicktake 100. I'm a little slow... :)

    Anyway, I'm going to a Nikon D50, and I'm really excited, but there's
    so much I need to learn.

    Toward the top of my learning priorities list is dealing with a flash
    unit I 'inherited'. It's a Quantaray PZ-1 DSZ. I know little or nothing
    about it, and it came without any kind of user guide or owner's manual.

    It _looks_ like a capable external flash unit, but I'm not really
    understanding any of the buttons, controls or display on the back. Can
    anyone point me to a user guide or owners manual for this unit, a web
    site that explains it, or failing that, something that'll simply help
    me understand the basics of external flash usage?

    Like I said, there's a lot to learn, but I'm looking forward to it.
    Many thanks in advance,

    --Bill

    Hello,

    A week or two ago a bought a camera at a garage sale and it came
    without the user manual, when i was searching around I founf this site

    http://www.theusermanualsite.com/

    its free to browse through and they have tons of manuals you can
    download and take a look at. I know they had a lot on their camera
    section so start your searching there, actually they even have a sub
    group with camera flashes

    http://www.theusermanualsite.com/manuals/device/camera_flash.html

    Hope this helps!
