There comes a time in a photographer’s life where you have all these strange cameras but without a clue on how to operate it or tinker with it. If that has happened to you, you’ve got GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) and you’ve got it bad. There’s nothing we can do for you.

What we can help you with however, is to track down missing manuals for your cameras! Orphan Cameras has over 2,500 camera manuals as well as other related photographic literature available for your consumption. It goes without saying that they don’t have ALL camera manuals, but they have a wide assortment that should suit most of your needs.
