New camera - what do you do first?

It's been nearly ten years since I had to get to grips with a new camera but after my e520 finally died (or was brutally murdered) last week, I find myself on that learning curve again!

Annoyingly, the manual is only available as a download but thanks to my Zutter machine I was able to print it off and bind it so I have it to hand.



The first thing I did when I got the camera was to put the battery in, attach the lens and start taking photos...only then did I resort to the manual to try and figure out what the hell I was doing!

So how do you deal with new equipment - dive straight in or read the manual first?

Janet
