Anyone got a D-BG2 Grip manual as a pdf?

Call me lazy, shortsighted or whatever, I cannot find the on line manual for the D-BG2 Grip. Anyone got a copy or hint to an on-line location?

Cheers
Dale

Doesn't even seem to be one on the Pentax web sites or anywhere else on the web. What do you need to know? It's a fairly simple device and acts the same as the buttons on the body.

The on-off button on the grip will not turn the body on. I have to turn the body switch to on, and then the grip switch to on, just to get the grip to work.

I'm not sure if this a feature or an issue.

It's in the design. The grip on off buttons are secondary to the main control switch.

My *assumption* is that the reason for the on/off on the grip is so the heel of your hand doesn't end up snapping more shots than your index finger ... and it works great that way when I remember to turn it off. hehehe

YES!!

It all makes sense, it would explain all the macro shots of my nose.

Thanks to all.

I have it scanned into a PDF. Shoot me an email address and I'll send it to you. I can't load it here because the file is too large.
