Mobile app does not show stickie over ten plus years we been this route with manuals online or even longer
OK, so is it just me, or does it seem a little odd that a $400 camera does not come with any manual, etc?
Hero 7 arrived today. 😁. It comes with a placard that has some vague pictures suggesting how to put the battery in. Then it has a fairly thick booklet that has 3 pages in English, talking about general warnings, like don't eat the battery, etc.
The other 30 pages are other languages and what looks like same warnings.
No instructions anywhere about how to navigate the operation of the camera.
Yeah, I should have figured. So many products have gone to manuals as downloadable PDF’s
I have not used a GP since the Hero 2, so this is a HUGE leap.
Thanks for the link, Fish.
Coming from an older generation, the younger generations do not care for paper and will throw it away with the packaging anyway. I have moved to that way of life as well. I will search for a manual or directions first before going through empty boxes as it is simply more convenient.
On my workbench in the garage, you will find an iPad Pro or Laptop setup more times than an oil covered service manual as it is just more convenient.
To take this one step further, I have found working at Microsoft that much of the documentation will list credits to the folks that wrote it or developed the application. This allows us to go right to the source with an IM or Email the moment we find an issue, or want to question what was printed with instant response. It truly does allow MFG's to be agile with their directions, firmware and software.
