But it does come with a manual, just not a printed one. In this day and age we all have smartphones, so surely carrying a searchable PDF on it for reference is much more convenient?

I'm sure at some point lantern or David Busch or someone will publish a "how to" aftermarket users manual/book that is way better than the factory info anyway . Keep an eye on Amazon .

Some comments a bit harsh guys , having a manual is nice when you're new at it .

In this age of digital media, I applaud Canon for going greener and saving some trees, not to mention the huge amount of energy it takes to manufacture paper. Why not just download the PDF to your smartphone and view it there?

+1. Props to Canon for not printing out a thick 250 page manual which probably won't even be opened by a good deal of buyers. Talk about a waste of paper! My 2 cents.

You have to admit though it was always nice to get new gear and then sit down with a cup of tea and flip through the manual :)

Unless it was for the kettle to make the tea in which case you'd have to read the manual first.

Lmao!

Like others have stated, get used to it. Green and saving some green.

You wouldn't purchase a camera that didn't come with a printed manual?

I actually went to the trouble to download the manuals for everything available in my gear list to my iPad. Didn't take long, it's a better option, etc.

I'll admit, at first I thought people were being a little harsh, but if you're seriously complaining that the camera is junk because it doesn't come with a printed manual, then I truly feel for ya.
