Very comprehensive document which is a must-have for any Satellit 2100 owner whose set up is somewhat intricate. Due to the bad quality of the pictures that are rather dark and a bit blurred I gave 4-star feedback.
The manual was missing 2 pages but when I presented the problem to the company they made every attempt to get the 2 pages to me, when they couldn't they refunded my money. A very pleasing and easy transaction. The manual they provided was the original, it was concise and to the point. I plan to do business with this company again when should the need arise.
The owners manual is very good. all my how to questions were answered in detail.

Normal mode is a simple and convenient photography mode in which the camera automatically selects the exposure (a combination of shutter speed and aperture setting) and the focus to suit the shooting conditions. This mode is ideal for general photography where you are not trying to achieve any particular effect. To avoid depleting the battery, you should use the viewfinder rather than the LCD monitor when taking pictures. However, note that the field of view in the image seen through the viewfinder may not match that of the image photographed. To precisely determine the actual field of view, use the LCD monitor when you take the picture.
Taking Pictures Using the Viewfinder
Set the Mode dial to [r].
MENU / EXE
Look at the subject through the viewfinder, position the AF ring over the subject and compose the picture.
â¢ If you do not want the subject in the center of the frame, use the AF lock (aP.27). â¢ Press the [SELECT] button to change the settings used to take the picture (aP.36).
Press the shutter button halfway.
â¢ The camera automatically adjusts the focus and exposure. When the camera is focused, the viewfinder lamp turns green. â¢ The camera focuses on a subject at a distance of between roughly 50 cm and infinity. To focus on subjects closer than 50 cm, use Macro (close-up) mode (aP.39). â¢ See P.27 for more information on using the shutter button.
