K-3 user manual download

I'd hope they would put the manual online ASAP for us who have pre-ordered.

Direct link:
http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/support/man-pdf/k-3.pdf

See:
Operation Manuals Download : Support & Service | RICOH IMAGING

or:
Downloads & Literature - RICOH Imaging

Update: Manual also available on .eu site: Download operating manuals - RICOH IMAGING - European Hub Site

I don't see a K-3 manual listed on either of those pages but I expect it will show up in a week or so.

That's my point. I'd like to read the manual in advance

Considering that they don't even have manuals up there on the pages you linked to for the new Pentax flashes, even though they are already in stores, don't hold your breath for a K-3 manual anytime soon.

They probably are... Actually hoping it will be in two parts 1st for RAW & 2nd for jpeg & In camera processing (which I can leave wrapped)

When I was speaking with their rep at SRS last Wednesday, he said the English version/translation had yet to come in for proofreading.

I love camera manuals - they are great for getting the fire going*


*they are also useful for lining the bottom of birdcages, but I don't have any experience with that.

In the past I think I did read through parts of the manual of every camera I owned, though mostly up front to decide whether new features would be worth it in the field, or to point some other user to the answer of a question posted on some forum.

Hence I would like to see the manual too. I could do with some more information to find out how most of the new features in the K-3 would work in practice before actually having the camera in hands.

I too am partial to giving the manual a look-see as part of the gear purchase process.

I never read the manual from cover to cover, but this one I may. But only in a proper book form. I hate reading manuals online.

Reading the manual voids the warranty.

With a release date sometime in November, is it possible that menus and such like in the firmware are yet to be finalised?... I sort of imagine that the user manual will be the last thing completed and added to the box.

I have to admit I actually did read the K-5 manual cover to cover, then referred to it a lot in the first month or two, and it paid off. ALSO I downloaded the manual in .pdf onto my smartphone so it was always available, and that was handy a couple of times.
