Nikon D3X Manual Available for Download

First published on: Friday, 23 January 2009

This 17.84 MB PDF instruction document (Nikon calls it a “Guide to Digital Photography”) for the Nikon D3X should prove to be a fantastic read, all 476 pages of it — be sure to download it!

Both printable and non-printable versions of the English Language D3X owner’s operation guide can be downloaded.

The user guide is titled “Nikon D3X Digital Camera User’s Manual” (the 17.84 MB Acrobat document that I referred to).

The guide discusses the features of the D3X and how to use the camera, for instance, on page 392, there’s a list of accessories that can be plugged into the remote terminal. The Phottix Cleon N8, a hybrid RF (radio frequency) wireless shutter release (trigger), is an example of such an accessory.
