It just occured to me that although I've been enjoying this site for a long time I've never passed on the link.
This site has owners manuals for many older cameras and flashes.
It's free to download but the site is supported by donations, so kick in a couple of bucks.
If you've ever tried to hunt down an old manual the value of this collection is obvious.

Let me guess...you found a new career opportunity to work from home.
Thank You for the excellent info!
This is good for folks who are re-exploring old film cameras.
I just sold my old Pentax on eBay, and would have loved to have enclosed a link to this site for the new owner of my old dinosaur.
I stumbled onto this site when seeking information about my mother’s Canon Sure Shot, a point-and-shoot film camera that was the forerunner of the digital Power Shot series. I was quite impressed with the site.
Not hardly! Don’t give me that zot crap, I’m not a blog pimp and I’m not selling anything.
Thank you very much!
Swamp is an old and cherished friend here on FR. You are more likely to get zotted then he is. Go away.
Speaking of dinosaurs, that site even has manuals for Graflex cameras that were popular among photojournalists before Nikons and Canons came into vogue in the 1960’s.
Thanks for posting this. Great site :)
Wow Ouch :(
Cool, thanks! On a sad note, I think my Nikon D60 is dying and I’m going to have to get a new camera. I kind of have my sites set on a D7000... ;)
SHAME ON YOU!
If I can find a low mileage used body that I can use my grip on I'll grab it.
The newer bodies take a different grip, and they are smaller than I like.
I can't see the point in a DSLR that fits in a shirt pocket.
My Dad, a WW2 navy photographer, had a Speed Graphic. My Brother still has it.
I have a d7000. A nice camera. Bit would be a nice upgrade to the d60.
btw, I have similar 'old camera info ' websites Bookmarked that I used to find that my old Sunpak 'Potato Smasher' Flash would fry my Nikon's electronics (and all new digital cameras) without using a voltage reducer (WEIN Safe Sync) on the hot shoe.
And it works. The only thing is with my Sunpak on my Nikon I have to turn the Strobe output dial down to 1/64 power for shots to 20'. I could prolly light up my cul-de-sac at night with it at 100% :-)
But I never posted any links because I didn't want to be accused by some 'apparently over medicated' person as a blog pimp ;-)
Not nice. You owe SS an apology, mom.
