01_filesOne of my book readers, Tobias Gräning from Berlin, Germany, dropped me a note yesterday with a great tip, based on one of my tips in my Digital Photography Book, Volume 3. My quick tip was to make sure you download the free digital PDF versions of your camera’s user manual because they’re searchable, and you’ll find what you’re looking for a lot faster (I have PDF manuals for all my own gear).

He took the tip up a notch by telling me about an iPhone application called “Good Reader PDF” that is designed to let you download and read these large-sized PDFs (larger size PDFs than you can normally read on an iPhone or iPod touch). You can see a screen cap above how the PDFs are listed, and then how they’re displayed (it’s just 99¢ from the iPhone App Store).

You can’t imagine how handy it is having your camera’s user manual right out on location with you, without dragging the physical manual out in the field. Thanks Tobias for sharing this one with me (and my readers).
