Pentax Owner Manuals.
Posted By: Chako, 12-27-2007, 04:29 PM

I am uncertain where to post this information. If I have this in the wrong section, feel free to move it. Likewise, sorry if this has already been posted.

I was doing some research and stumbled upon this web site. I figured it may be helpful to others, as it contains a repository of user/owner manuals on many things. They seem to have a huge Pentax section (11 pages worth). This section contains owner manuals, operation guides and service manuals for a lot of things Pentax.

the web site is called "Device Manuals".

Pentax Owner Manuals

Pentax itself has an extensive repository of manuals for many of their cameras and accessories.

Pentax Imaging - Manuals & Literature

Many of the older manuals are fair/poor quality photocopies that have been converted to PDF files. Newer manuals are higher quality.

The manuals go back to the Pentax H1 (c. 1961).

While the early cameras (and therefore the manuals) were branded under the Honeywell name, the site does not carry manuals for other Honeywell products, such as the Strobonar flashes.

Just so you people know, NEVER buy any manuals online. There's no need, when they're out there for free. There's plenty of places charging up to $15-20 US for a PDF.

(Unless of course you're getting an original, printed manual for collecting purposes.)

And, for other K-mount, non-Pentax manuals, there's Free camera instruction manuals, free camera user guide, camera manual, camera instruction manuals, Ricoh camera manuals, Sears Camera Manuals, camera instruction manual, replacement camera manual, ricoh point and shoot, cosina camera manual, fujica. Chinon, Ricoh and Sears cameras.
