    OM-D EM-1 manual available for download

    Olympus has made the OM-D EM-1 manual available for download at the Olympus global site. I checked and it is also available at the OlympusAmerica site.

    I'll get my printed version when I buy the camera.

    I usually find the PDF versions most convenient as I don't have to rummage around and mutter "... now where did I put that blasted manual..." - LOL

    It would be nice if a printed manual came with camera (as well as the PDF), but that doesn't seem to happen with any of the camera suppliers now. PDF is fine, but printed makes for some fascinating bedtime reading.

    BTW, it is good to read up on the manual before you get the camera & when it arrives the manual might start to make sense then.

    The OM-D E-M1 does comes with a printed manual :-) We might gripe about the increasing habit of not including lens hoods, but Olympus does include manuals in all of the cameras I've seen :-)

    Reading through the manual and looking at the various videos available online is something which I do before making any camera purchase

    The manuals you have seen are just basic ones, not the full manual.

    Ross, then I do not understand what you mean by the "full manual." The printed manuals I received when I bought my E-1, E-620, and EP-2 were just the same as the downloadable PDF versions.

    What other ones are you referring to?

    Puzzled, Mike

    Those models came with Full Manuals, but the E-M5 didn't (in mine anyhow) except in PDF format on the CD with just an abridged printed version included in the box & other camera manufacturers do the same thing now too. It may have only been since last year that Olympus started doing that, but who knows, this E-M1 might have the complete manual.

    Ok, thanks for clarifying that.

    It is quite disappointing that Olympus has been skimping on the included manuals :-( Just as it is to see that the mFT "PRO" lens still requires paying extra for the lens hood. The various FT lenses I all bought came with lens hoods included. Skimping on what should be included really annoys me (not just Olympus, but many other manufacturers).

    The manual for the OM-D E-M1 states that it includes a manual, but it did not say which type. There is a YouTube video on unboxing the camera, I haven't watched it all of the way through as it appears to simply be taking the camera out of the box, then the protective sleeve, then attaching a lens... The tray containing (presumably) the manual is just set aside. At some point I will watch it all of the way though :-)
